Brief Vitae

I have been writing for many years and am the author of two novels and one true-life story, “The Gatekeeper,” “The Fosters,” and With Eyes from Both Sides,” respectively; “With Eyes from Both Sides,” being told to me by the subject and written by me as an account of the life of a notorious drug “queenpin” in the late 80s, which garnered the subject of the book a biopic on the REELS TV Show, “Gangsters – America’s Most Evil – Thelma Wright, Philly’s Gangster Queen.” I am presently working on another true-life story of a famous local radio personality in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

I hold a Master of Arts degree, summa cum laude, in Writing Studies from St. Joseph’s University. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology, also summa cum laude from Kaplan University. I am an expert in information systems, technology, strategic systems analysis and networking, having worked in the field for over 30 years until my retirement in 2016. I am presently pursuing my doctorate in Educational Leadership-Higher Education, maintaining a 4.0 average and look forward to obtaining my Ed.D. in May of 2018.
