I am a playwright, poet, fiction and nonfiction writer, ghostwriter, speechwriter, and teacher of writing. I welcome commissions to write individual and family memoirs, speeches for family and professional gatherings, dramatic sketches for all occasions, and celebratory poems and toasts. These can be combined with my photographs to create literary/pictorial tributes and reminiscences.
