TJ Sullivan is a Los Angeles-based writer and photographer:

"I've written for many newspapers and magazines, including the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and The Dallas Morning News. The issues and events I've covered have varied greatly, from junkie jockeys on horse tracks in the high desert of New Mexico, to the hairsprayed heads of celebrities at the Academy Awards in LA. I once ran seven miles in the icy predawn of Santa Fe with former Gov. Gary Johnson, the same fitness-obsessed pol who has since reportedly advocated legalizing heroin. I interviewed President G.W. Bush during his 2000 campaign on the caboose of a train as a boy on a bicycle followed close behind, riding no-handed and flipping two birds. And I spent a day with famed former child actor Jerry Mathers as he pitched an IMAX movie about Beavers. To paraphrase Hunter S. Thompson, I'm just another freak in the freak kingdom." -- TJ Sullivan
