C o n t a c t
Back in the day after graduating from the University of Rochester, I apprenticed in printing crafts and managed a small print shop with a beautiful Heidelberg press; then I worked as a business magazine editor (Rochester Business Magazine) before moving on to jobs in the corporate and non-profit world.
In full-time assignments, I have driven corporate communications, public relations, and media production at Heidelberg, Nortel Networks, NPES, Orphan Foundation of America, and Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic. As an independent consultant, I was selected by Xerox as one of 10 Preferred Writing Vendors in North America, and have served smaller clients ranging from a telecom provider (WVT Communications) to school systems, businesses and nonprofits.
My wife and I are adoptive parents to a lovely daughter born in Ethiopia, whose birth parents died from the HIV epidemic. You can read an account of our daughter's arrival in America HERE.
