I am a writer and father living in Bearsville, NY. My work as a political consultant sent me to six continents over four decades from 1988 to 2019. My clients included numerous presidents, potentates, and one deity. I won Pollie Awards from the American Association of Political Consultants for Internet campaigns and radio ads. My quotes appear in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post, among others.

I am writing a collection of interlocking short stories, CAMPAIGN LITERATURE, about candidates and elections. Five of these stories ranging in length from 1,500 to 6,900 words are completed. I also enjoy writing about angling. My fishing essays have been published in The Woodstock Times in 2019 and 2020. Other interests include school board politics, brook trout, and enduring love.
