This site has been created primarily as a resource for my journalism and Communication students.
Who am I? I’m a former print journalist who spent 14 years at The Seattle Times writing both news and feature stories. My beats over the years included diversity/race, immigration, the environment, night culture, dance, TV and general assignment.
I left newspapering in May 2008 but I didn’t want to stop telling stories. I was lucky enough to land immediately at KPLU-FM, an NPR-affiliate in Seattle, where I’ve been freelancing ever since.
I’m also contributing arts editor at Crosscut.

I first began teaching at the University of Washington in March 2005. I was a part-time faculty member at the UW from 2008 to 2013. In Spring 2014, I began teaching at Seattle University.
I use this site to both organize some of my favorite tutorials and resources about multmedia and to post about the successes (and failures) of journalism/storytelling/communication. I’ll occasionally ramble here about lessons learned in the classroom as well as my own life post-print.
But I post most often about things that inspire — anything that might get one’s creative juices flowing. I welcome links, posts, thoughts on how to make this site better. Thanks!
