I am a writer, editor and journalist. Welcome to my virtual reality experience.
I like to write about politics, culture, food and sometimes corduroy. I have edited news and feature magazines in the Mountain West and written for Harper’s Magazine, The Daily Beast, The Atlantic, The Daily, The Believer, Politics Daily, The Mountain Gazette, GOOD Magazine, The Boise Weekly, The Sun Valley Guide, Saveur, Sunset Magazine, The Huffington Post and The New York Times. I wrote a book about international beard and moustache competitions before facial hair was hip. I have done a bit of radio and TV, and I have a knack for debate prep.
Here are some stories I wrote about rodeos, tacos, Newt Gingrich, morel mushrooms, states’ rights, Rupert Murdoch’s lost wedding ring, and Neko Case. One day, I will write a single kaleidoscopic vision quest about all of these things.
