About me

I'm from the old media, newspapers, and recognize that social media are stirring a revolution in how we reach and influence each other.

Innate concerns about fairness led me into journalism. I worked at several newspapers, most notably The Philadelphia Bulletin and The Wall Street Journal. I was a reporter at The Bulletin and The Journal and, later, an editorial writer at The Bulletin.  My instinct for treating people fairly was greatly reinforced at both papers, whose guiding precepts were accuracy and fairness.

After those newspaper stints, I served as Communications Manager at the Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Station after the 1979 accident there. The management of the GPU Nuclear Corp., TMI's operator at the time, stressed observant, accountable management, qualities from which fairness and comptence grow.
