Work has previously appeared: National Daily Newspaper, Daily Newspaper, Online Newsmagazine

As a professional journalist for more than 50 years, I've covered virtually every conceivable story from local zoning disputes to wars, presidential races, Kremlin intrigue and natural disasters.
I've been an Austin-based free-lancer since 2012 after ending a professional newspaper career that spanned more than four decades and included service with the Dallas Times Herald, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Knight Ridder Newspapers and its successor, McClatchy Newspapers.
Most of that service included a total of more than three decades as a bureau chief in Washington, Austin and Moscow, where I was the chief Russian correspondent for Knight Ridder from 1998-2002. During my time in Russia, I covered the rise of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the second war in Chechnya and a financial crisis that gripped the nation for more than a year.
Since becoming a free-lancer, I've operated out of my home base in Austin, where I've been a long-time statehouse correspondent, and juggle a multitude of assignments for clients including the New York Times, Stateline, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and others. Texas is a freelancer's dream, offering a booming economy, legendary politics and an endless parade of fascinating people.
Although I was born in Boise, Idaho, when my father was stationed there during World War II, I grew up in Abilene in West Texas and consider myself as much a Texan as any native. I'm also a proud alumni of the University of Missouri, Class of '66, and remain an irrepressible fan of the Mizzou Tigers.
