My work has appeared in various newspapers and small magazines. My current work is on the op-ed page of the Arizona Daily Star (and the home page of this website) but prior to that, I wrote a family life column that ran for a dozen years in various outlets, including the Dallas Morning News and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and sold more than 100 articles to numerous Catholic publications, including to The National Catholic Reporter and Saint Anthony Messenger. Additionally, I was an op-ed columnist for four different Catholic newspapers from 1992 to 2003.
When I worked as an education reporter from 2007-2009, my primary focus was higher education, but I also covered the murder of a police officer, served as a dive-bomb reporter on the sports desk, wrote the obituary of a former crime boss and got to interview Gloria Steinem for a piece on a local mathematician. Samples of my work are below.
