In 30-plus years as a journalist, I’ve written for a variety of newspapers and magazines to include The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Runner’s World, Parents, Equus, Ladies’ Home Journal and Family Circle. A few have won awards, to include this profile of Tom Brady’s trainer, which took first place, sports writing, in the 2020 Top of the Rockies newspaper competition and first place, sports feature, in the Society for Features Journalism 2020 Excellence in Features contest.  Below are a few of my favorites.
