I’m a freelance writer and editor in Washington, D.C. Currently I am co-author of National Journal’s acclaimed reference book “Almanac of American Politics 2014,” having served as co-author of the 2012 edition. I also have contributed to editing National Journal’s coverage of the 2012 election.
Earlier I was co-editor of Congressional Quarterly’s “Politics in America 2010” and a national correspondent and news editor for the now-defunct Newhouse News Service. I previously spent six years at CQ covering the Senate, national security and energy issues, and as a Washington correspondent for the Albuquerque Journal.
Before coming to DC in 1995, I was at the Journal in New Mexico covering a variety of issues, including the world’s first underground garbage dump for nuclear waste. It was the subject of my 2002 book “Nuclear Reactions.”
