His Bloomberg articles won two consecutive New York Press Club awards and he was a national finalist in the Investigative Reporters and Editors contest.

The Woman Who Rode the Wind is a novel about early flight. His non-fiction book, In Search of the Paper Children, exposed the foster care system and was instrumental in passing legislation to help children.
