Everyone has a story. Let me tell yours.

I milked a goat. Her name was Victoria.

I also walked the streets of a crime-ridden neighborhood after dark with a drug dealer turned pastor and woke before dawn to board a shrimp trawler after the “daylight squirt.”

I did it all in the pursuit of a great story.
