As a freelance journalist I have written for The New York Times, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe and other publications. Topics have included emerging technologies, government, privacy, education and the arts.

As a writer of fiction I've written two novels. The most recent to publish, The Lobby Fair, is available at Amazon. It is the story Gina Deegan, a single mother coping with the loss of her job. The book is set in the Seaport area of Boston and it takes place at the tail end of the Great Recession. I'm working on a third novel, one of a different kind, and I hope to have it published by early 2019.

Two years ago, when I first heard the music of Muzio Clementi, I was hooked instantly. Clementi composed and played during the time of Mozart and many of his pieces have a "Mozart-like" quality yet with a simpler touch. As a guitarist I wondered how Clementi's piano sonatinas would sound on guitar. With my daughter's help we transcribed the first movement of Sonatina No. 1 (Opus 36 ) to sheet music for guitar. Here below it is for anyone to download, share and enjoy.
