Creativity without boundaries

Scenes from my play, "Bris."


I have been a storyteller all my life—as a journalist, speechwriter, corporate communicator, politician, college instructor, actor, and playwright.  Nine of my plays have been produced in the New York City area over the last four years, and two of them have been nominated for awards by the New Jersey Association of Community Theaters.  A native New Englander, I now live in Holmdel, New Jersey, and I’m currently a member of the Dramatists Guild.  You can find most of my plays on the New Play Exchange.   


I’m an adjunct instructor at New York University, teaching graduate classes in strategic communications and public relations writing.  I’ve also created professional development courses around story-telling and presentation skills in a corporate setting. And I have served on my town’s school board for over eight years.

Corporate Guy

I have been a senior communications strategist for more than three decades, helping Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, and top agencies tell their stories to global audiences.  In the process, I have delivered a wide range of editorial works, including digital content, video scripts, blog posts, news releases, and executive speeches.
