He teaches creative nonfiction in the Masters in Writing program at Johns Hopkins University, and is a recipient of the John Bartlow Martin Award for Public Interest Reporting, granted by the Medill School of Journalism. In the line of duty, he has scaled the world's tallest active volcano, crawled inside a nuclear reactor, bicycled a thousand miles across rural Cuba and plumbed the depths of the American prison system to examine the state of inmate healthcare. "Vanished" is his first book.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
