I write. I edit. Anything (mostly). With over 40 years experience as a journalist, newsroom leader, opinion shaper, public relations and public affairs expert, I'm a language lover and an expert at refining jargon, gibberish and garble into readable, cogent communications. Need a plan? I do that, too, with an acute ability to peek just over the horizon to see what's coming at you. As a journalist, I've covered the mundane to catastrophes and edited much of the same. As communications counsel for a global ad agency, I've developed and planned communications strategies for Fortune 50 leaders. I've developed and led corporate media training programs. The single, outstanding trait marking my work is that I know how to identify what the story is and tell it in compelling fashion. Nearly as important, I'm affable, flexible and a good work partner.
