I'm a journalist with 10+ years experience in reporting and editing. My freelance credits include O: The Oprah Magazine; The Advocate; Chicago Reader; University of Chicago Magazine; Indianapolis Monthly; and numerous other publications. I also spent four years as the editor of the Chicago Journal, a downtown community newspaper with a circulation of 26,000. Before that, I was a staff writer/columnist for the New Times/Village Voice Media publication Cleveland Scene.
