“We’re past the age of heroes and hero kings. … Most of our lives are basically mundane and dull, and it’s up to the writer to find ways to make them interesting.” —John Updike Over the past 35 years, I've balanced parallel careers. I spent many years as an entrepreneur, leading several companies from start-up to industry leadership. I have the bumps and bruises to prove it. I've hung up my cleats. At the core, I am a writer. I have vast experience, with over 35 years in the profession. Writing is my passion. Over the years, I've covered virtually every topical category. I've also worked extensively as an editor. I've been published a number of times in regional and the national media. I bring a unique blend of executive leadership and writing-editing skills to the table. I am now semi-retired. That means I work 40 hours per week rather than 80. I'm available for new assignments. I reside in Baltimore with my wife, Darlene, and my special pal "Zoey the Wonderdog."
