I'm a veteran LA-based journalist and editor who has been a staff writer with the LA Weekly and senior editor of the LA City Beat. I'm currently a contributing editor to the Los Angeles Times Magazine, editor for Fishbowl LA, and write for several other outlets both print and online. I've been honored by the Association for Alternative Newsweeklies and by the Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) for my story "Navahoax." My story "Children of the Revolutionary" was honored by the The LA Press Club and First Amendment Funding Inc. I'm also a recipient of a Village Voice Media Fellowship. When I'm not writing I wander, usually by foot.
