I hate flying, but I love on-the-ground reporting — so I spend plenty of time in the air.
Based in Oklahoma City, I also write a weekly national column on religion and media for Religion Unplugged.
When I can fit it into my schedule, I freelance for clients such as Religion News Service, The Washington Post and Christianity Today. My byline has appeared everywhere from the Paris-based international wire service Agence France-Presse to the front page of the Los Angeles Times to the website of USA Today.
And talk about burying the lede: I’m crazy in love with my wife, Tamie, and a super-proud father and grandfather.
Besides my family, I’m passionate about my faith, Texas Rangers baseball and country music (the classic kind).
