Hire Me

I have two decades experience in journalism, and I’ve won awards for reporting, column writing and blogging. I’m available for feature articles, personality profiles, and columns, as well as news, features and analysis on the Catholic Church and general religion features. I’m known for being able to get sources to talk to me when they won’t talk to anyone else, and have interviewed the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem and Shaquille O’Neal, and lots of people in between. I am skilled at developmental editing of opinion and lifestyle columns and blogs, and will work as a hired gun for ghost writing. My public speaking wheelhouse includes parenting, higher education, mental illness, the Catholic Church, and the intersection between faith and public life. My talks have been called informative, inspirational and funny, especially if you’re drinking a margarita. A sample of my live storytelling is here.
