I have two careers.

For thirty years I have been a physician practicing medical oncology and pain medicine. The experience in that career led me to adopt an additional one. For twenty years I have been a free-lance writer. I have published a regular newspaper column, numerous op-ed pieces, persuasive essays, humorous articles, book reviews, and poetry. I have published two books as a solo writer, and one as co-author.

I am better than faster writers, and faster than better writers.

Why should you hire me? Oddly enough, because I don't need the job! I write for the joy of the craft. I would be ashamed to submit a piece that fell short of excellence.
