Past Work

The vast majority of my work has appeared in newspapers and magazines, including Texas Monthly, Garden & Gun, AAA Explorer and Texas Journey. and many more. My online work has appeared in Slate, Salon and Adventure Journal. I’ve interviewed astronauts, athletes and artists, as well as many musicians including Norah Jones, Steve Earle and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons. It’s been a wild ride, and one I expect to keep going for as long as I can. 


Here are a few of what I consider to be my greatest hits:
