As a "depth journalist," my beat is covering 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 environment, or more enduring topics such as creativity, family, or even the weather. I believe that finding the hidden themes operating in the background of our everyday lives helps broaden our perspective, instill wisdom and enliven the mundane with a touch of magic. It's what keeps me writing and researching and, I hope, will keep readers reading.
