Bio: Me? I'm an award-wining visual journalist and also graduate student in diplomatic/military history at the University of Missouri. But my passion is writing, if anything to get the story that has inhabited my mind for years out at last.

I live in Columbia, with a wife who at least pretends to understand what I'm talking about, and a cat who has no clue what I'm saying, but likes the lap and the warmth of a good laptop.
