About Me

As a longtime Washington Bureau Chief, I kept The Dallas Morning News punching far above its weight in DC, directing consistently excellent coverage of issues and players that impact Texas. I specialize in accountability journalism and probing analysis and have awards to show it. At the White House, in Congress and on the campaign trail I've produce engaging stories that enlighten, debunk and hold the powerful to account. Until I figured it out, Sen. Ted Cruz had no idea he'd been a Canadian citizen his entire life.

Three kids, two dogs. Married to a recovering journalist turned special educator.

Yes, that's a Trash 80 on my shelf.
