Quill magazine editor, social media type, and education director for Society of Professional Journalists (@spj_tweets). Often found reporting and engaging in acts of journalism. Too many interests, of course, but some: journalism/media industry geek, public media evangelist, often found trail running/hiking/backpacking/camping/mountain biking in the great Pacific Northwest (and beyond). For some strange reason I think training for and running in marathons is a good idea.
