The PowerBook is Mightier Than the Pen

I first began writing with any sense of serious purpose in 1996 when I was a junior in high school. Shortly after getting on board with The Arizona Republic as a youth reporter, my editor gave me the opportunity to be a regular humor columnist. That's when I saw what kind of impact I could have on people's lives - which is to say little to none. But if you put on a nice shirt and tie, you can stage a photograph that makes you appear somewhat important. Here, you'll find a collection of current and archival pieces that I have written for both this site and also for actual publications that matter. Remember, the views published within these writings do not necessarily reflect the views of my employer.
