Let me tell you a story.

About an Irish designer who spends St. Patrick's day typing P-A-D-D-Y again and again and again. A 46-year-old office manager whose menopause turned out to be a boy named Sam. An iPad-loving boy on the Autism spectrum. A male nanny, a Little League pitcher, a neglected horse from a noble line. A party where tall people get down, a poetry reading at a Laundromat, a co-ed skateboarding school in a country where women live as lesser citizens.

Narrative transforms a dry pile of facts into a welcoming structure inviting readers to stay awhile. Whether writing a hard news piece or a light feature, I tell stories that not only inform, but also engage.
