Los Angeles Times, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, book author, freelancer
After a brief stint with CBS Television's Docudrama Department in Los Angeles in 1979, I worked in the LA Times' Calendar arts and entertainment section in the 1980s as a copy editor, letters editor, freelance writer, columnist and second-string TV reviewer. During the 1990s I was a Sunday feature writer, reporter and weekly columnist in my hometown at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. During the 2000s I was an associate editor, weekly opinion columnist, book-page editor and letters editor at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. My weekly Q-and-A interviews with the likes of George McGovern, Milton Friedman, Jane Jacobs and other important, brilliant or newsworthy Americans were nationally syndicated in the 2000s. I've freelanced for major newspapers like the Washington Post and New York Post as well as Reason magazine, the Moscow Times and Men's Health. No Pulitzer yet, but no lawsuits either. The New York Times editorial page praised me and my journalism for my Steinbeck findings in 2011. So did travel author Paul Theroux and renowned Dutch journalist Geert Mak.
