I hate flying, but I love on-the-ground reporting — so I spend plenty of time in the air.
Besides my full-time work, I’m a media critic for GetReligion — with more than 1,100 columns published since 2010 — and a freelance writer for major news outlets ranging from Christianity Today to The Washington Post to Religion News Service.
And talk about burying the lede: I’m crazy in love with my wife, Tamie, and the super-proud father of our son Brady and daughter-in-law Mary, our son Keaton and our daughter Kendall. I’m passionate about my faith, Texas Rangers baseball and country music (the classic kind).
