s a nonfiction writer, I write pieces about public policy and the arts. For several years, I wrote pieces for the New Haven Advocate, my local alternative weekly, covering everything from books and music to zoning and immigration. I've also written book reviews for the Village Voice, Las Vegas Weekly, and New Haven Review. A 2011 book review for the New Haven Advocate was run as a cover story in 2011.

Several years ago, I also wrote a long piece called "Imagining the Next War," covering a conference of the same name sponsored by the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation. That piece was published in March 2007 and is available here as a PDF; hard copies are available from the foundation upon request.

Finally, here is a piece I wrote about old-time music for Ed Champion's blog. Thanks to Ed for giving me an avenue to write about music I love.
