I am the managing editor of the Maryland Independent. I’ve won national awards as a reporter and editor, including the Suburban Newspapers of America’s Journalist of the Year. I live on a small farm in Southern Maryland with my wife, two daughters and an ever-shifting population of animals. I write News of Note in the Independent every Friday, which chronicles the (mostly) humorous ups and downs of life in the country.
