Whether for television, radio, print or web, I've produced more than one thousand pieces over a career that's covered a lot of issues, a lot of crises, a lot of personalities and has taken me to every continent on the planet.
I was lucky enough to win some awards along the way and met people - some with well-known names, many without - who change the world every day in the directions they choose and the things that they do.
Somewhere along the way I got niched as a "profiler" who specialized in the hard-to-get, hard-to-profile interview subject and, four hundred profiles later, I've met some truly unique individuals.
When not catching a flight or making deadlines, I taught public relations, marketing and feature writing at the University of Washington, became certified in forensic (post crisis) interviewing and earned a private investigator's license. I served as a regional president of the Society of Professional Journalists and am or have been a member of the National Writer's Union, Society of Professional Journalists, the American Society of Journalists and Authors, Investigative Reporters and Editors and Public Relations Society of America. In my spare time I'm committed to working within child welfare programming and am certified as a CASA/Guardian Ad Litem in multiple judicial districts.
