General manager, PRI.org

After an early career mistake of leaving Paris and the French wine trade, I recovered by becoming a reporter.

I've written for magazines like Glamour (where I was the only male on staff for a brief time), reported on science and tech for WGBH-TV, covered Somalia, Rwanda and South Africa as NPR's Africa correspondent, created online games like BudgetHero, and started the Public Insight Network of citizen sources that many newsrooms use today.

Along the way, I earned an MBA and have lived in France, Kenya and Mexico. That winding path has finally led me here, running PRI.org as its general manager.
