Senior Editor (he/him)

I’m currently in charge of our reporters covering criminal justice, mental health, housing, and immigrant communities. 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.

What questions do you have about the criminal justice system or the local economy?
