Bio

 

I began professional writing as a newspaper correspondent in 1991. I’ve worked in a variety of media, including magazines, broadcasting and early Internet ventures. My writing has been published in the Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal and Philadelphia Inquirer.

I became the first journalist to meet and interview child refugee Elian Gonzalez in a worldwide exclusive at the Miami house where he would be seized by the U.S. government. After the September 11, 2001, Islamic terrorist attack, I founded a paid subscription-based newsletter (on hiatus) and, in a 2002 San Francisco Chronicle essay, I argued that Iran is the West’s foremost enemy.

Turning to motion pictures, I accepted a partnership offer in 2002, managing editorial operations and writing reports, reviews, a column, and interviews for a top-rated Hollywood Web site which was sold to Amazon.com’s Internet Movie Database in 2008. I completed a four-year undergraduate-level program in the Objectivist Academic Center (OAC) at the Ayn Rand Institute in Irvine, California in 2012, and attended author Leonard Peikoff’s 2013-2014 writing course. I currently teach public and private business and media courses and workshops in Los Angeles and help companies, organizations and artists achieve goals through communication. I write fiction and non-fiction in southern California. Read more about my approach here.
