About Me

As the National Editor in Chief of a political publication, I'm committed to good journalism and covering the stories that mean the most to society. I strongly believe in ethical reporting based on facts without any partisan spin. I believe as a journalist, I can get a lot accomplished through positive messaging.

I thoroughly enjoy covering political events happening around the globe with an emphasis on providing balanced content that highlights policies and humanistic philosophies of government. Too often many media and other social outlets present unbalanced and unfair portrayals of humanistic government policies, elected officials, aspiring candidates, and corporations.

Many media outlets do not value humanistic ideals in society and present only negative news headlines in the name of quick financial gains while ignoring their responsibilities to tell the truth. That type of reporting only causes long-term damage to the credibility and safety of journalists.

I have been married for 25 years and am the proud father of three amazing children. I am a huge sports fan and have been coaching basketball for 25 years. I love life and positive vibes.

I am a night owl
