NOB HILL GAZETTE (SAN FRANCISCO) -- After attending San Francisco State University and working as a copy boy at the Chronicle, he went to work as a reporter at The Washington Post, where he eventually earned a Pulitzer as part of the breaking news team that covered the 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech. He then went on to make a documentary film, The Other City, a bracing look at the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the District of Columbia that was based on his reporting. He occasionally returned to profile Bay Area luminaries, including Mark Zuckerberg, for The New Yorker.
