My Ever-Expanding Vocabulary

When I went freelance in 2003, I thought I’d enjoy a life focused on nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Instead, each day is increasingly about data dumps, DNS propagation, and server redistribution.

Yes, we have the technology. But can it re-build me?

Shifting Gears a Little Faster

My training for September’s sprint triathlon continued at 6 a.m. today with an eight-mile bike ride. I shaved nearly four minutes off my time from the same route just three days ago.

This is the first time I’ve thought that I might actually be able to get to the bike-run transition area before they shut it down. Sure, I’ll still probably finish last in my age group, and yes, I expect to cross the finish line a good half-hour after they’ve given out the winners’ awards, but maybe I won’t be a complete embarrassment after all.

And I feel really great for trying.

Welcome to the New

This website is designed for editors and fellow journalists who want to learn more about my skills and style.

Yes, the old let you do that, too, but not with nifty features such as a live feed from my Twitter page, an RSS feed of my daily blog on, and the ability to show you my first forays into vidcasting.

I hope this new site will keep pace technologically with all the new formats where I apply my journalism skills in the future. Thanks for taking the time to explore my body of work.
