Freelance journalist, syndicated columnist.
I feel fortunate to make a living as a journalist – knocking on doors, asking questions and capturing the details that bring a story to life.
I’ve been contributing to The New York Times’ coverage of the Midwest since 2007, reporting on a myriad of topics, from religion to politics to sports and weather.
My syndicated column “Twenty Something” runs in more than 50 newspapers across the country and was named “Best Regular Column” by the Catholic Press Association.

Freelancing keeps me busy, whether I’m crafting a long-form magazine feature or an essay for public radio. I’m always sniffing out my next story.
