Having been a writer/photographer for more years than I can remember, I write about a number of subject areas including automotive, consumer electronics, technology, even a tad of social comment. I have worked in the wire services, newspapers, technology industry as a tech writer and systems admin, all the while remaining a freelancer. I wrote a column for one major Boston newspaper for over 31 years. Meantime, I was writing another auto column for a newspaper group west of Boston. I had this column for more than a decade. And, I wrote an automotive/business column for another major western suburban newspaper for seven years. All of this work was concurrent. I have broken two major stories, one involving auto rustouts and a second involving what was to have been the secret break up of the Old Harrah Auto Collection with mint pieces going to certain collectors. NYTimes ran this one in business section and it was cover on Automotive News. I have had stories go cover on Popular Mechanics, Home Mechanix, Automotive News, AutoWeek, Old Cars Weeky and more. I am an automotive/gadget examiner for The Examiner (national and Boston) and I am a featured automotive contributor to Yahoo ! Associated Content. I also have written for many independent contract houses.
