Versatile, deadline-oriented professional with more than 25 years as Chicago-based writer and graphic designer.

Sports coverage my specialty, with ability to turn around game stories and even features on short notice. Also adept at spot news coverage, politics and campaigns and personality profiles. Central location gives me easy access to all Chicago sports venues. Can travel on weekends to Milwaukee, St. Louis, Detroit and Twin Cities as well as Big Ten university towns and Notre Dame.

Have freelanced for Chicago Tribune since 1994 and have also written on assignment basis for the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun, Dallas Morning News, Orlando Sentinel, San Jose Mercury News, Salt Lake Tribune, Arizona Republic, Boston Herald, New Orleans Times-Picayune, Philadelphia Daily News, Cincinnati Enquirer, Minneapolis Star-Tribune and other major metros.
