A published writer from Upper Michigan, I freelanced for the Milwaukee Sentinel in early 90’s. Began a career in broadcasting after my first two years of college. Served as a radio journalist and news director for several radio stations from 1987-1994. Gave up journalism in 1997 after a brief stint as a television news assignment editor.
Legally blind from a genetic form of glaucoma since 2000, I was fired by my last employer in 2006 and resumed my writing career. Returned to my first love, poetry, and now fiction with stories based primarily on my experiences as a reporter. My work has been recognized at Writing.Com by fellow writers with an upgraded membership and inclusion in several writing communities there. Bulk of my current work is displayed at:
My background includes:
~ Bachelor of English, Northern Michigan University.
~ Associate of Arts, English, Bay de Noc Community College.
~ Editor of college literary magazine “Serendipity,” and college newspaper "Bay Beacon."
~ Awarded twice in 1991 by Michigan Association of Broadcasters for radio stories produced for WNMU Public Radio.
Aside from writing, I keep myself busy as a stay-at-home Dad, and with gardening and digital photography.
