501 N. Calvert Street
Head of Maryland News
I supervise editors and reporters who cover news in the Baltimore area and Maryland, with a particular emphasis on the Sun's website. Among the topics are health, science and the environment. I'm a member of a Tribune-wide team that is focused on broadening health coverage. I also write the Sun's Read Street book blog -- www.baltimoresun.com/readstreet -- a daily compilation of news and views about reading.
I joined the Sun as a business reporter, and have held a number of editing positions, including those in the areas of Readership, Special Projects, Metro and Lifetyles. I'm active in the Maryland-Delaware-District of Columbia Press Association, serving on a committee focused on issues involving open government and freedom of information laws. I'm a graduate of Wesleyan University and the Boston University School of Law.
