Have been writing freelance since 1984. Had my own music-biz column in statewide and nationwide publications. Wrote more than 150 articles for the Jacksonville Business Journal, a dozen or so for alternative weekly Folio Weekly (Jacksonville), several national magazines (Utne, The Humanist, Free Inquiry, Left Curve, The Communigator) and was a stringer for AP's Miami bureau during the 2004 election. I also taught writing for mass media (mostly journalism) at UF and at Flagler College and am a quick editor, well-versed in AP style.
