A good freelance writer brings two key talents to every job: the ability to illustrate the heart of any given story, and the skill to create copy that fits seamlessly into the client publication.

I write on many subjects, in many voices.

For The Economist, I have written essays on issues ranging from racist angst to Southern politics. I have covered hurricanes and polite children and life-and-death dilemmas for Time. I have written market analyses for Dow Jones News, stock-picking strategies for Forbes.com and a syndicated column about equities for YCharts. I have told tales of entrepreneurial seniors for The New York Times and described the struggles and successes of business owners in major features for The Wall Street Journal and Inc. magazine alike. I have turned incredibly arcane academic research on monetary policy and finance into journal articles read by business and policy leaders around the world.

This site is designed to provide a feel for the work I have done, and a sense of the variety of stories I can make possible.

With an old-fashioned canvas canopy and a top speed of about eight miles per hour, it is a notoriously unhip craft, holding little appeal among the sail-and-power crowd that has made recreational boating an $11 billion-a-year industry. But a two-year-old company owned by Learjet heiress Sanda Lear-Baylor. . . continue >>>

Mississippi Politics: . . . and the dog you came in with
From The Economist magazine, by Dee Gill

It is well known in Mississippi that the governor, Kirk Fordice, has a penchant for offensive bombast. This is the man who routinely calls the state attorney-general “Flashbulb” because of his media popularity, and who refers to the killing of inmates on death row as “reducing the inventory.” As for the media, that bastion of lying leftists has inspired numerous tirades from the governor over the past eight years. . . continue >>>
