In the past 10 years as a reporter in the Denver bureau of The Associated Press, I've covered former Qwest CEO Joe Nacchio, death penalty appeals of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, anniversaries of the shootings at Columbine High School, and complaints of staff shortages at the nation's toughest prison. I've written lighter stories looking at the sneakerhead culture of shoe collectors, how a new beer style is born, and neighborhood ski hills. Sometimes I collect audio and take photos too.

This site is my first experiment in using Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks and animated GIFs. Cheers!
