Introduction

I'm a writer and videographer, shins deep in the murky waters of journalism. Yay!  I've published well over a thousand articles on the Houston area and around a dozen feature-length reports on video games and geek culture. Presently, I'm the national web producer and weekend web producer for the Houston Chronicle.
