Summary of skills
For more than a decade, I worked as a reporter and sometimes as an editor for a 50,000-plus circulation daily newspaper in the Capital Region of New York. I produced readable, highly accurate stories often under intense deadline pressures and demanding conditions. The job required a high level of people skills, attention to detail and ability to make sound decisions on the fly. I had to interact daily with a spectrum of people [police officers, presidents of companies, U.S. senators, regular folk] who sometimes did not want to respond back. As such, I had to be persistent, forthright and honest in order to obtain the information I needed for the reading public. I developed a reputation of trust and credibility in the process, basically by ensuring the information I processed was correct, fair and balanced. The information had to stand solid against any and all legal challenges and appeal to finicky readers. Each day, I wrote stories that were funny, serious or hard-hitting. They showed a creative flair that captured the reader's interest. The process was almost akin to writing a 10-page term paper every day within in a couple of hours, complete with verifiable references.
I also worked 10 years in public relations for a hospital and was involved in marketing its services.
During the course of my career, I wrote more than 6,000 stories and won journalistic awards. Being a journalist was a rewarding experience that made me a competitive person with high standards of excellence. It taught me to remain positive in an ever-changing industry and made me a self-motivated person who never gave up and who thrived on obtaining scoops.
Covered local and state politics, business, economic development and general assignment. Am expert in many of these areas.
