My career has taken two different tracks and I’m running on both of them to this day. The first one was in writing for advertising, public relations, broadcast and other media, both on the client and agency side and now as a freelancer.
As a journalist, I’ve written event previews, features and criticism for the Erie Times-News and other regional Gannett newspapers and in the Chautauquan Daily. My magazine features and profiles have been published in Lake Erie LifeStyle, CODA, Signal to Noise and Erie & Chautauqua magazines, the latter of which I served as an editor, and in online music journals AllAboutJazz.com and PostGenre. I was a host on NPR affiliate WQLN-FM’s long-running All That Jazz program and was producer and host of my own two-hour program After Hours. For several magical years, I served as onstage host at Erie’s Blues & Jazz Festival, the best gig imaginable.
