Professional Experience

I'm a New York-based journalist, editor, and story consultant. I've written multiple non-fiction books, most recently working with Senator Doug Jones (Al.) on Bending Toward Justice (St. Martin's Press). I've also authored or edited scores of manuscripts, screenplays and scripts across genres and platforms. In a career spanning three decades and three countries I've also penned hundreds of news and feature stories for leading media outlets and filled senior staff roles for large-market newspapers, magazines and news agencies, winning multiple awards while covering politics, crime, business, sports, travel and entertainment. As a writer of children's entertainment, I've scripted feature length screenplays, television and video projects that have sold about 15 million units globally. Currently I am ghostwriting a major title, script doctoring and writing project proposals for authors, screenwriters, and producers.
