About meGreetings! I'm the author of Oh, Beautiful: An American Family in the 20th Century, a courageous family memoir that explores what it means to be American. For my day job, I'm editor-in-chief of RAND Review, the flagship magazine of the RAND Corporation, one of the world’s most prestigious research institutions. In the 1990s, I was editor of New City/Pueblo Nuevo, a multilingual magazine for families and communities working to prevent substance abuse in the Latino, Armenian, and Russian immigrant neighborhoods of Los Angeles. And in my volunteer time, I serve on the editorial board of The Way of St. Francis, the magazine of the Franciscan Friars of California.
