I’m a writer and editor in San Francisco, the great city I’ve called home since 1994. My reporting and essays have appeared in publications including Salon (where I was an editor from 2003-2009), Rolling Stone, The Atlantic, Arrive, PBS.org and Mother Jones, where I’m currently a senior editor. I’m also the associate director of MediaBugs. I have a MFA in Writing from University of San Francisco, and periodically teach journalism and creative writing at San Francisco State University and 826 Valencia.
I write about a broad range of things; you can check out a cross section of my long-form journalism here. I also blog on this site about politics, culture and media innovation. For my current writing at Mother Jones, go here.
