I run the journalism program at Bucks County Community College, where I've taught courses in news reporting and writing, editing, feature writing and digital video for more than 20 years. I'm author of the textbook "Newswriting On Deadline." As a journalist I've worked for the New York Daily News, The Associated Press, the Auckland Star (New Zealand) and other newspapers. As editor of the journalism section of (now for eight years, I wrote widely about current issues facing the news business in the digital age.

I'm also a freelance writer for hire.
