I write nonfiction about stuff that interests me: food, sports, the arts, places, science, people, the future, and education for publications such as New Mexico Magazine, Humanities Magazine, Thinking Highways, UltraRunning Magazine, The Albuquerque Journal, and The Santa Fe Reporter as well as a variety of websites (check out the link above). I’ve been known to shoot some film here and there and have a few photo credits hanging around. I write fiction under another name.
My interests are exactly what you’d expect from someone once described as “ridiculously and dangerously curious.” In addition to graduate degrees in truly esoteric subjects from universities in the US and the UK, I’ve served as a Marine, an academic, a semi-pro cook, a legislative catalyst, a senior executive in a handful of publishing and media houses, and a transportation and defense futurist working with national governments and private industry. I’m also fascinated with entrepreneurialism and its power to channel effort and desire for a greater good, and I’ve founded five companies over the past fifteen years to bring ideas to market. I live most of the time in the North African city of Algiers, with the deep blue of the Mediterranean on one side and soaring heights of the Atlas Mountains on the other.
