About me

When you tell a story, you build trust and closeness. I'm a storyteller. Businesses can add value by telling customers and clients just who they are, what they live by. I tell stories with my newsletter Ball Atlanta, about Sports in Atlanta. I also tell stories about successful entrepreneurs and business people. Email me. Let me tell your story. I told stories for 18 years with The New York Times and 25 years with USA Today. I'm good at this.

My roles and specialties

Articles & Blog Posts Writer

Sports, Entrepreneurs

Have you always been independent? What has your career trajectory been?

I was the Sports Editor of a daily newspaper in Knoxville, Tenn. When the paper was bought out by its larger rival, I decided I wanted to be independent of others business decisions and make my own way. I have been freelancing for almost 30 years. It is the write life. Sometimes you get to pose with a future Hall of Famer, like Chipper Jones. That's me, top left.

Who are some of the clients you have worked with?

The New York Times, MSNBC, CNN, Forbes, OZY, USA Today. I love to write Sports, but I also like to write about successful business people. Athletes are entrepreneurs, after all. They grind, at first, and when they achieve...they grind some more. When you are really good, the press box is on fire. Mark Lemke and Jeff Blauser of the Braves pose as the press box burns from a lit cooking cannister July 20, 1993. The Braves went 38-11 and won the NL West. I was there.
