My favorite articles have been profiles of fascinating figures -- civil rights legend Bob Moses, poet and activist Grace Paley, novelist and wild woman Dorothy Allison-- but I also enjoy in-depth research into current scientific, political and ethical controversies. My other pleasure: writing personal commentaries for Vermont Public Radio.

You can find a few of my articles here -- or at least the ones new enough to have survived the digital divide. Warning: This website is a work in progress. I'll try to add a few articles every week, but it will be a while before it's even marginally complete!
