I am a veteran journalist and writer based in Kansas City, Mo. My gigs at the Kansas City Star included editorial writer, opinion columnist, metro columnist, police reporter and City Hall reporter.
Now I’m on my own, still voicing opinions and still looking for good stories. I am a contributing writer at The Pitch and seeking other outlets. I specialize in writing about craziness in Kansas and Missouri state governments, schools and colleges and health care.
My interests: bikes, beer, biographies, family, friends, cats and kids. I have traveled on five continents and like Africa best, but I’m flexible. I have a great front porch in Kansas City’s Waldo neighborhood.
