About

I've been covering Appalachian communities since 2001, when I switched from wildlife biology to journalism and moved back to the mountains where I grew up. After nearly 12 years in newspapers, I went freelance in early 2013.

Today I report on central and southern Appalachia for outlets such as the New Republic, Belt Magazine, Inside Appalachia, Southeast Energy News, Blue Ridge Outdoors, and many more. I'm also preparing to launch an independent podcast covering politics, culture, history & life in Appalachia.

I do this while also raising a family, dog, cats, chickens and dairy goats on a small homestead at the edge of the Blue Ridge Plateau in Floyd County, Virginia.
