Senior Editor (he/him)

I’m currently in charge of our criminal justice and business reporters. I served as KPCC’s first News Director, from 2000-2012.

I started in journalism as a radio and print reporter, and later worked as a foreign editor at NPR.

I really cut my teeth in the 1980s, covering Central America from my base in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. It was an excellent vantage point for covering two neighboring wars: the conflict in El Salvador, where the U.S.-backed government fought Cuban-backed guerrillas, and the war in Nicaragua, where the Cuban-backed government fought U.S.-backed guerrillas.

As a native Angeleno (I grew up in Gardena and Sherman Oaks), I love that we can go from beautiful beaches to luscious mountain pine forests in less than two hours.
