I’m the founder of Think Piece Publishing, an imprint dedicated to mental health advocacy through the arts. I’ve put out several high-profile projects, including Julie Barton’s memoir Dog Medicine, which went on to become a New York Times bestseller; Adam Levy’s album Naubinway, which made top 10 lists around the world; Janet Burroway’s critically acclaimed Losing Tim, and Mark Mallman’s The Happiness Playlist.
From 1996 to 2010, I was executive editor of Minnesota Law & Politics. I was editor-in-chief of Super Lawyers from 2010 to 2012. I was a senior editor at Twin Cities Business for a year and a half. Today I am copy chief at Fast Horse.
I’ve written for Citizens League Voice, Delta Sky, Minnesota Monthly, MinnPost, Mpls/St.Paul, MSNBC, Next Avenue, Pollen, Star Tribune, Tennis, Twin Cities Business and other publications. I’ve also done copywriting for corporate clients, such as Snap Fitness, Deluxe, Thrivent, and Blue Cross. You can find samples of my work on this site.
Away from the keyboard, I put a lot of miles on my Asics, haven’t missed a Wilco concert since 1997, and spend a lot of time in bookstores. My dream dinner party would be Elvis Costello, Marilynne Robinson, Barack Obama, Tina Fey, and Andre Agassi.
