About Me

Used to be a journalist and now I’m just writing extremely long-form about rural America, conservatism, and US-Israel politics.  Sometimes I write short-form to and would be happy to entertain pitches. Love commenting about all things rural/politics and have done so for groups big and small, and on-screen as well as on background.  Come for the currentist analysis, stay for the deep dive into political rhetorics of belt buckle trends on e-bay.
