Since 1977 I've specialized in covering domestic and international fruit and vegetable trade. Traveling to five continents I've covered international trade agreements, food safety & security, ag research, production, packing and packaging, organics, transportation, port operations, warehousing and distribution, foodservice and retail merchandising. I also have a sports writing background. Cruising/sailing is my hobby and occasional for-profit writing venture. I know rowing, swimming and traditional sports. I'm a single dad and can 'do' family issues, too. I published International Produce Journal through the 1990s. I'm good with a camera. Thanks. Tad
