As an award-winning journalist for major U.S. newspapers--including The Boston Globe, Miami Herald, and Washington Post--for more than a decade, I have covered breaking news from Hurricane Andrew and the crash of TWA Flight 800 to the Roman Catholic church crisis and New England’s connections to the September 11 terrorism attacks. I also have written daily stories and features for newspapers and magazines covering housing, science, health, technology, politics, crime, and law. I served as The Washington Post's New England correspondent in Boston for six years and was a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2003-2004. I currently contribute to outlets including The Boston Globe and Boston Globe Magazine, The Washington Post, and National Geographic News, among others.
