Introduction
By day, I'm I work on the Digital Operations Team in the newsroom of NJ Advance Media, home of the Pultizer Prize-winning Star-Ledger newspaper and its web site NJ.com. When I'm not in HTML, social media or SEO Hell, I also dabble in writing fiction and a small bit of poetry. 

On the features and news front, I've freelanced for such magazines as Bikini, Details, Chance, Men's Health and Playboy Online. I also wrote a column for the gambling magazines Casino Player and Strictly Slots

Online, my flash fiction and poems have appeared at Zygote in My Coffee, Red Fez, Deuce Coupe, Gutter Eloquence, Shoots and Vines and Six Sentences.

My pulp novella 'FRONT PAGE PALOOKA' was released September 2013. A follow-up collection of short stories, 'BOURBON & BLONDES' was released November 1.

Influences: The simplicity of Hemingway; the Skid Row rawness of Charles Bukowski; the understated genius of Raymond Carver; the poetry of Bruce Springsteen; the Chuck Buk-channeling of Tom Waits; the psychedelic dreaminess of Jim Morrison; the immigrant sensibilities of Bernard Malamud; the jazziness of Jack Kerouac; the quiet isolation of Edward Hopper; And let's not forget Richard Ford and Andre Dubus for the carrying on of Carver's sensibilities; the irony of O. Henry; the dreariness of Poe and the cool swagger of Sinatra, Dino and Sammy et al.
