In addition to teaching at Gettysburg, I am a writer and editor who has been a professional journalist since 1985.

I also am a frequent contributor to several business publications, including the Central Penn Business Journal in Harrisburg where I once was the top editor. I have been a writer, editor or reporter at news organizations in Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and New York. I am a former president of the Associated Press Media Editors in Pennsylvania and a former president of the Pennsylvania Society of News Editors. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Maryland, College Park. My master's degree is from Towson University.
