I am the associate director of government reform at the Center for American Progress, a Washington think tank. Before that, I was an investigative reporter at Bloomberg News, and a government and higher education reporter at the Baltimore Sun. I began my journalism career at the great Baltimore City Paper.
Here is a resume.
I have taught public policy communications at Georgetown and George Washington universities, academic writing at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and fiction and poetry writing at Johns Hopkins. Here are a series of checklists I use to teach writing.
My wife is the beautiful Anne Dechter of Harford County, Md. Don’t be jealous.
