More about what I do:
My background is in newspapers and radio/television news. In addition, for 16 years at the Foundation for American Communications (FACS) I was responsible for the education of professional journalists about issues they cover. I speak at home and abroad about music and about first amendment and free press issues.
I support the JJA because
It encourages professionalism and high standards among those who write about jazz.
