Profile Information

School of Journalism & Electronic Media

Despite the degree in marketing, I have spent my career in journalism. I started at The Knoxville Journal while a student at UT in the mid 1960s. I have worked at The Miami Herald, The Charlotte Observer, The Louisville Times, The Dallas Times Herald, D Magazine (Dallas), The Kansas City Star, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and Atlanta Magazine. In addition to the above publications, my work has appeared in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, People Magazine, Spirit Magazine, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Dallas Morning News, and numerous other publications. Six of my photographs are in the United Nations Archives in Geneva, and I have provided the captions for cartoons. And I have worked as a professional Santa Claus.
