Published Work

Some writers are specialists and other generalists, but I consider myself both. I like to embrace topics I know nothing about because I’m curious. But it also helps me ask unbiased questions, which leads to a balanced story.

Of course I report on pet subjects, too. I love writing about the environment, education, anything connected to culture—or subcultures—and I’m an avid cyclist, which crops up in my writing. Human behavior fascinates me, too, because I am interested in revealing the deeper truth behind our actions.

To paraphrase the Pew Research Center, journalism is storytelling with a purpose and strives to make the significant interesting and relevant. That’s what I hope to achieve with my writing—to make what’s relevant interesting.

Here is a small selection of my work:
