From breaking news to feature stories, and from criticism to interviews, my writing has appeared at sites like The Believer, StarTrek.com, The Stranger, Tor.com, WIRED, and io9. In my time as executive editor of the Portland Mercury, I covered politics, film, books, and just about anything else you can think of.
Selected clips can be found below, and a legitimately horrifying amount of my work is available via Authory.
