New York City born and peripatetic since, I’m a former reporter and editor. My work has been published in the New York Daily News, Los Angeles Daily News, the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, the San Bernardino Sun, the Pasadena Star-News and the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. I write a weekly column for the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group, which covers the greater Los Angeles area. I’m interested in healthcare, open government, disaster preparedness and end of life care. Opinions here are my own.
