I have been practicing written journalism since my high school days as editor of The Shakerite at Shaker Heights High School in Cleveland, Ohio. I began my career as a freelance movie reviewer in Santa Cruz, CA, evolved into a cub reporter and then a police, city government and human interest beat reporter, and finally an entertainment editor at the Santa Cruz Sentinel. I became a reporter and film reviewer at the trade publication Daily Variety in Los Angeles, and after three highly educational years, moved to the Los Angeles Times, where I worked for five years as the primary film correspondent, won the internal award for best reporting and was formally nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. These are some samples of my work, which will be added to as I uncover pieces from my past life that surface on the Internet. I still write a monthly column for the Winston-Salem Journal, and occasional pieces for Daily Variety, the Hollywood Reporter, and various other publications, which will be featured here. I also have a chapter in an upcoming publication of critical essays on the writer-director Billy Wilder by McFarland Press.
