I have written for many of the world’s best magazines and newspapers, including the Globe & Mail (Toronto), the Independent (London), and The New York Times. I am a contributor to TIME. While I specialize in sports-writing, I have also authored stories about the environment, travel, education, technology, world affairs, and culture. My latest writing is regularly posted on the homepage of aka In The Fray. Here are some older articles.

While I mostly tell stories through words, when I am on assignment I record sound, take video and shoot photographs, some of which have been published in the New York Times. I have also collaborated on web/multimedia projects.
