Research

I'm a freelance American writer and photographer who covers endurance sports. My most recent book, Spitting in the Soup, investigates the complicities inherent to performance enhancement in sport and American culture. It will be published by VeloPress on July 1, 2016. My previous book, Argyle Armada, documents a year with Jonathan Vaughters' Garmin/Slipstream pro cycling team and Vaughters' attempt to create a team culture that encourages riders to race and train without doping. I studied English literature at the University of California, San Diego as an undergraduate and have an MA and PhD in English from Boston University.
