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 became a New York Times bestseller; Adam Levy’s album Naubinway, which made top 10 lists around the world; Janet Burroway’s critically acclaimed memoir Losing Tim, and Mark Mallman’s beloved memoir The Happiness Playlist.
I’m formerly the director of learning at Fast Horse, where I produced a weekly Q&A column with creative thinkers.
I’m formerly the publications and web editor at the Minnesota League of Cities, where I edited Minnesota Cities magazine and Cities Bulletin.
I was the executive editor of Minnesota Law & Politics for 14 years before becoming editor-in-chief of Super Lawyers.
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 many other publications. I’ve also done copywriting for corporate clients, such as Blue Cross, Deluxe, Magenic, Snap Fitness, Tectura Designs, Thrivent, and Trystar. You can find samples of my work on this site.
I hold a master’s degree in public affairs from the Humphrey School at the University of Minnesota and a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from St. Cloud State University.
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.
