I began professional writing as a newspaper correspondent in 1991, covering news, sports, commentary, business and entertainment and working as a columnist, consultant and production assistant in a variety of media, including advertising, broadcasting and early Internet ventures.
Key assignments include the Los Angeles Times Interview and a candidate interview series for the Philadelphia Inquirer during the 2000 presidential campaign. In 2000, I reported a worldwide exclusive when I became the first journalist to meet and interview the asylum-seeking Elian Gonzalez at the Miami house where he would be seized at gunpoint by the U.S. government and forced to return to Communist Cuba.
Within weeks of the September 11, 2001, Islamicist attack on America, I created a paid subscription-based newsletter (on hiatus) and, in a 2002 San Francisco Chronicle op-ed, I made the case that Iran is the West’s foremost enemy. I entered a partnership in 2002 and turned to movies, writing reports, reviews, a column, and interviews for a top-rated Hollywood Web site which we sold to Amazon.com’s Internet Movie Database in 2008, when I enrolled in the Objectivist Academic Center (OAC) in Irvine, California. I completed my writing and philosophy studies in 2012.
I am currently writing fiction and non-fiction.
