I am a Western Slope Colorado native, born and raised in Grand Junction. My hands were stained with ink before I could vote. I started in journalism at age of 15 as a reporter for Kids Ink, a weekly insert in the Rocky Mountain News. I wrote obituaries and the police blotter at the Colorado Springs Sun before attending college. I edited the Western State College newspaper, Top O’ the World, before transferring to Mesa and becoming a father.
Then things got off track. I practiced law first as a commercial litigator and then as associate general counsel for a medical malpractice insurance company. I operated a small bookstore with my mother in Sedona, Ariz.
Things finally got back on track when I returned to newspapers first as a sports reporter, then as a news editor and eventually as managing editor for three sister community newspapers located in Sedona, Cottonwood and Camp Verde, Ariz.
