    1993 - 2010
    After 16+ years, and thousands of great stories, NBR Worldwide eliminated my position (along with 7 other colleagues) on Friday, November 12th. Most of all, I'll miss working with the best group of colleagues a video storyteller/journalist could ever hope for. And I thank NBR for the opportunity to tell them. As they say, onward and upward...As Senior Correspondent for NBR, my job was to find great stories on business, financial, and economic trends, and tell those stories through the eyes of businesspeople, investors, or regular folks - whoever was most affected by the story at hand...and to find the best visuals possible to tell those stories to NBR's audience. The big highlights of my years working at NBR: - a national business Emmy Award nomination for my series "State of Repair," on the nation's public-works infrastructure. The series aired in 2007, only weeks before the tragic Minneapolis interstate bridge collapse which focused so much of the nation's attention on infrastructure spending. -two trips to Cuba, one in 1995, the other in 2003, reporting on Cuba's flirtations with private enterprise. -in June 2010, photographer Mike Malanga and I spent a week traveling along the Gulf Coast, reporting on the BP spill's impact on businesses and local economies. -Six Months after Katrina. We spent a week in Biloxi/Pascagoula/Pass St. Christian six months after the storm, looking at the economic struggles of the region.

    I developed daily news stories for WEAR's Santa Rosa County bureau, based in Milton, Florida, in the Florida panhandle. Our story coverage took us as far north as "LA" - Lower Alabama - the rural cotton- and peanut-growing areas in the center of the county, and the fast-growing beachside communities on the Gulf of Mexico.

    1990 - 1991
    WPTF is now known as WRDC. During my time, WPTF was a low-rated NBC affiliate. I was hired just before the first Persian Gulf War broke out to staff the station's Fayetteville news bureau. I departed one year later, not long after the troops returned home, when WPTF's new owners canceled the entire news operation. My time as bureau chief was spent covering the hardships of military families of the 82nd Airborne as they waited for the shooting war to start. We focused a lot of coverage on the joy and challenges greeting the division's soldiers when they returned, victorious, from Kuwait.

    1993
    I'm currently NBR's healthcare-reporting specialist, developing stories about changes in the healthcare industry under the "Bill of Health" story moniker. I'm also the back-up for our Miami-based senior anchor and all-around good guy, Paul Kangas. I also contribute story ideas for our bureau correspondents and pitch in on writing and "other duties as assigned."

    I started at NBR as a reporter/producer for the program, and also as back-up anchor for a spin-off program called "Morning Business Report" (canceled in 2001).
