The writer, editor, and photographer writes with clarity and humor in his verse and columns about growing up in the second half of the Twentieth Century. He has been called “New Jersey’s ‘Garrison Keillor’ ” or something to that effect,’ when that was a good thing to be called.
His photography earned him the nickname "New Jersey's 'Anvil Adams'." He has published eight photo collections. His first solo print photography exhibit was at Nutley Public Library during the summer of 2023.
Born in Belleville, the Nutley, N.J., resident edited business news copy for 12 years at Dow Jones & Co. and The Wall Street Journal professional web pages. He worked for several years as an associate editor at TheStreet.com
He has written in online publications about life and growing up in northern New Jersey. For five years he wrote about commuting and transit in metro New York-New Jersey.
Photography is a fun challenge. It challenges me to stop and see the world, and to try to capture what I see so you can see it, too.
When I consider the thousands of digital photographs I have stored and backed up on various hard drives and clouds, I realize that when I am gone someone will come along, trash the hard drives and toss this old PC and all will be gone with me. Except for my books which may be available forever.
