I've spent four decades as a working journalist in the Boston area, both as a reporter and copy editor. I've also taught journalism classes at Northeastern University and Emerson College. I love working with other copy editors, news editors, and reporters and always aim to produce the best possible product for our readers.
For the past eight years, have worked part-time at Emerson teaching one class per semester. Taught an introductory newswriting course for several years, and for the past few years have taught a news editing and design class.
For two years, tutored Stoughton High School students who had failed the MCAS exam at leasts one time. Most students were in special-education programs and needed much remedial help and encouragement to help pass the test for graduation.
Decades of experience as a copy editor and news editor at The Boston Globe. Have worked in several editorial departments including Metro, Foreign/National, Region, Business, Living/Arts, and Sunday magazine. Currently copy desk chief for regional editions, and switch hats to work on night copy desk. .
Taught beginning reporting and writing classes for several semesters. Also taught a class in public relations for one semester.
For eight years, was responsible for overseeing the New England report for morning newspaper subscribers to our service. Wrote, edited, and filed copy for all six New England states, and funneled some of that copy on to the national print and broadcast wires.
While at Columbia, worked 30 hours per week at the Times. In addition to routine copyboy work, wrote several bylined articles, covering breaking news in the Brooklyn/Queens neighborhoods.
For nearly three years as a Northeastern University work-study student, wrote more than 200 bylined articles, including breaking news, features, and politics. Learned rewrite skills from some of the best in the business. Wrote at least 30 Page 1 stories, including several that led the paper -- the police capture of Susan Saxe, one of the FBI's 10 Most Wanted; and on the murder of a Boston police officer.
Working in a federal job under the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, got the word out about our agency to the local news media in southern New Hampshire via press releases, photos, video. Produced a monthly newsletter that was mailed to 4,000 homes in the agency's targeted low-income neighborhoods of Manchester.
In my first newspaper job, as a college sophomore, I primarily covered town government in Framingham and Wayland. Also wrote features and sports news.
While earning my degree, worked part-time as an editorial assistant and correspondent for The New York Times. My core-class teacher at Columbia was city editor at The Daily News, and I wrote a magazine article for their Sunday magazine. My master's thesis was a four-part series on the troubled New York City public parks system, which had been largely ignored in part due to the city's financial near-bankruptcy.
During my years at Northeastern, I worked in three paid co-operative education jobs; as public information officer for the US Model Cities program under the Department of Housing and Urban Development; as a reporter for the Middlesex News in Framingham, MA; and as a general assignment reporter at The Boston Globe.
