I'm a veteran journalist who tells powerful stories about how spirituality, art, science, and history impact our lives. And I do it with a smile.
I began my career in journalism in New York, at Travel and Leisure magazine and other travel publications. I was a long-time writer and editor at the pioneering cultural-political magazine Utne Reader, and am the author of the 2008 book “How to Believe: Teachers and Seekers Show the Way to a Modern, Life-Giving Faith,” from Random House. I edited the online magazine The Line, covering business and urbanism in Minnesota, and am currently working with Franklin Covey in San Francisco, the Bolster marketing agency in Minneapolis, American Craft magazine, and other outlets. I live with my wife, artist/entrepreneur Laurie Phillips, and three beautiful black cats.
