Professional/Personal Overview
  Whether I'm writing a profile, a service piece or a narrative feature, I will dig deeper to locate the latest studies, the ideal anecdote or that seemingly minor detail that elevates and surprises. A former newspaper reporter, my specialties include health/medicine, business, science, policy and psychology. In 15-plus years, I've lived in nearly every time zone (now based in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas), filed thousands of articles and never fully satisfied my curiosity.
