Storyteller - Interviewer - Teacher - Coach - Musician - Cancer Survivor
I have won journalism awards for feature writing, awards for teaching English in middle school and high school, and Coach of the Year in community college tennis. I coached over 200 national champions in tennis at the Chuck Boyle tennis academy. I received the highest faculty evaluation in the history of Chapman University my first semester teaching Freshman English while attaining my Masters degree in English.
I have interviewed many music and sports celebrities. Basically whoever I wanted to meet, I found a way to interview and write about for many magazines. I’m retired from teaching because I’ve been dealing with cancer for 17 years.
