It’s all about me

I've added several items to the About Me section of this site, including a bio that basically amounts to a resume and a few stories I've written and designed for magazines for which I've served as an editor. The bio information details my education background and career in journalism, as well as the awards I've... Continue Reading →

A few more photos

The News' coverage was much more toned down compared to the coverage that the Milwaukee papers provided on the case. In fact, the News only ran... Continue Reading →
