About Me

I’m a been-there-done-that reporter who has worked in all the media’s mediums: Radio, T.V., I wrote a book about what I learned covering the Michael Jackson child sex abuse saga and I’m currently writing a nationally syndicated newspaper column.

I have a freakish attachment to all things having to do with crime and justice, although I’ve covered all sorts of stories, including national politics in Washington – which I guess some might say is akin to covering crime. You'll see here I often mix the two.

Its human behavior that fascinates me most – why do we do the things we do to each other?

You’ve seen or heard my work on NPR, WCBS-TV, NBC, FOX, Court TV and on syndicated televisions programs like Hard Copy. See my full bio here:
