As a professional writer and editor for more than 30 years, I have immeasurable experience in supervising teams, budgeting, marketing, conducting group meetings, writing, editing, and dealing with the media and public. I possess unmatched “people skills” and have unparalleled expertise in written and oral communication. My attention to detail is second to none, and my drive toward completing a project is without comparison. In those 30 years, I’ve been involved with writing and editing associated with a large number of subjects, including sports, business, leisure, and technical matter, and have worked for newspapers, large corporations, and government contractors for the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, and the Department of Energy. I can cite the AP Stylebook and Chicago Manual of Style and know the different style guides for the government and military. I can grasp any subject matter expeditiously and can talk to subject matter experts to rectify any issues. As far as background checks, please know that I have an active Department of Energy Q clearance as well as a current Department of Defense Top Secret clearance, and once held a Department of Justice Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance. Few people in the country have had their backgrounds so scrutinized.

I am a master grammarian with more than 30 years of experience in writing and editing. I have a working knowledge of Spanish that becomes very useful when teaching students here in New Mexico.
I began my sportswriting career in 1979 by covering soccer on the high school, college, and professional levels. I was a youth coach for many years and also a USSF-certified referee. I had the privilege of covering the first FIFA All-Star game at Giants Stadium that pitted the European All-Stars (Franz Beckenbauer, Johan Neeskens, Michel Platini, Paolo Rossi) against the Rest of the World All-Stars (Diego Maradona, Socrates, Zico). I also covered the New York Cosmos when they had the likes of Pele, Beckenbauer, Giorgio Chinaglia, Carlos Alberto, Neeskens, and Americans Ricky Davis and Shep Messing. I continue to follow the growth of USA soccer to this day.
