FEATURES & COLUMNS  

I write features that explore the tangled threads of people's lives to reveal their struggles and triumphs. I also have shared my experiences. After completing training as a wildland firefighter,    I trudged through swamps in Texas in search of remnants of the Space Shuttle Columbia after it exploded on re-entry. I also smuggled a baby into Cuba, but that's another story.
