I'm a senior writer at the Reader. Before that: grad student at NU, staff writer at the St. Petersburg Times, and beat reporter at City News Bureau. My first Reader story was published in 1980; I've been writing the culture column since 2000. It's been a feast of great material, including Professor Jerry Harris's explanation of why so many of us are broke and out of work ("The Transnational Economy"); the state law that got artist Chris Drew in much deeper trouble than he'd bargained for when he set out to make a point about the lack of art on Chicago streets ("Accidental Poster Child"); and this profile of Chicago's bad boy architect, Stanley Tigerman ("Tigerman on the Loose").
