I have learned that in addition to the spirit of this time there is still another spirit at work, namely that which rules the depths of everything contemporary. Carl Jung, The Red Book
As a depth journalist, my work is to cover – or “uncover” -- the psychological, spiritual, historical and archetypal dimensions underlying surface events. What drives me as a writer is the search for the inner story concealed within outer facts, whether current events such as political polarization and the environmental crisis, or more personal topics such as family and creativity. I believe that finding the hidden themes operating in the background of our everyday lives helps to deepen our understanding of the complex issues we struggle with in the modern world, while connecting us to those larger forces shaping our individual lives. It's what keeps me writing and researching and, I hope, will keep readers reading.
