I am a journalist by trade, a photographer by desire, and a creative writer by nature. I’m driven by “Why?” and aspire to robust kindness.

As a veteran reporter, I cover breaking news, social and economic policy, and science, for an international audience. (A brief bio and samples* of past works are on my Journalism page.)

I will post updates about my fiction and creative photography projects, some recently revived and others newly underway, on my Tulpaloose page.

Free Range

In dogs I trust

People, so many people these days, seem on the verge of losing it. If we're lucky, a dog - or two - will come to the rescue.
