Freelance Writing

I have been a freelance writer for nearly forty years. My career began with sports stories in high school for The Rockland Standard (now part of the Wicked Local network of online newspapers) and the (brief) publication of an underground newspaper, The Bullbl**p. I also had the honor of contributing to the “High School Focus” program of The Boston Globe.

During college, I wrote articles on various topics for The Amherst Student and over the course of a couple of summers, worked as a stringer for The Patriot Ledger.
