Biography[edit] Moehringer was born in New York City and was raised by a single mother in Manhasset, New York and, later, in Scottsdale, Arizona. He graduated from Saguaro High School in Scottsdale in 1982. He graduated from Yale University in 1986. He began his journalism career as a news assistant at The New York Times. In 1990, he moved to Breckenridge, Colorado, and worked at the Rocky Mountain News. In 1994, he became a reporter for the Orange County bureau of the Los Angeles Times. In 1997, the Los Angeles Times sent him to Atlanta to report on the South as an on-the-scene reporter.[2] His work as a journalist later took him to Denver, Colorado. He was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing in 1998[3] and received the Pulitzer in 2000.[4] He is not married and currently lives in Denver.

Works[edit] Moehringer's memoir, The Tender Bar, was published in 2005. It recounts his childhood through his early twenties and tells of his coming-of-age experiences at a local bar called Publicans (previously called Dickens, and subsequently renamed Edison's), which served as a sanctuary away from his chaotic family life. After retired tennis star Andre Agassi read The Tender Bar, he asked Moehringer to collaborate with him on his own memoir.[5] The resulting book, which was titled Open: An Autobiography, was published in 2009.[6] Moehringer wrote an article for the Los Angeles Times Magazine about a homeless man who claimed he was Bob Satterfield.[7] In 2007, the article was adapted as the basis of a film Resurrecting the Champ. The film was directed by Rod Lurie and starred Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Hartnett, and Alan Alda. His novel, Sutton, based on the life of bank robber Willie Sutton, was published in 2012. He ghostwrote Phil Knight's memoir, Shoe Dog, published in 2016.[8]

Awards[edit] 1997, Literary Award, PEN Center USA West. 1997, Livingston Award for Young Journalists. 2000, Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing.[1]
