    I graduated from Harvard College in 1963 and worked for a few years in advertising, as an account executive and television commercial producer. Soon, however, journalism became my passion and I moved on to a career of over 30 years in television news. For ten years, I traveled throughout the world as a Senior Producer with the NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw broadcast; ten years before that, I was a Producer with The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather. Most recently, I was News Director with WICZ-TV, a Fox affiliate station in Binghamton, while at the same time operating an organic dairy farm in Delaware County, supplying milk to Horizon Organic.


    During my journalism career I was honored with two News & Documentary EMMY Awards in 1984, produced three hour-long, network documentaries for CBS Reports, worked as News Director in the award winning WCVB -TV News and Public Affairs unit in Needham, Massachusetts and won a PEABODY Award in 1968 as Producer on the National Education Television Series Black Journal.

    I grew up in rural New Jersey (not an oxymoron, or at least it wasn’t back in the 1950s). I have more formal education than is probably good for a person, and I have been a teacher, in one form or another, for nearly fifty years. I have taught art to second graders, science to sixth graders, math to incarcerated men, English to recent immigrants and to women in China, and various education courses to wannabe teachers. When I'm not trying to teach anyone anything, I enjoy birdwatching, traveling, and hanging out with family and friends, preferably in Roxbury, New York, aka The Center of the Universe.
