I write professionally for radio and print, specializing in music features. For over 20 years, I hosted Brave New World, one of Santa Fe, New Mexico's most popular radio programs. I have had a parallel career as an urban and regional planner, recently retired as the Director of the Growth Management Department for Santa Fe County. I played a key role in the creation of Santa Fe County’s Media District and the development of Santa Fe Studios. Initially, I moved to Santa Fe to study filmmaking at The Anthropology Film Center. I have produced and written one film, “Making Tracks”, a documentary about the Santa Fe Rail and Trail System that has aired on public television in Santa Fe. I currently reside and write in Delray Beach, Florida.
My radio program, Brave New World, currently runs daily on my collaborative internet radio station, Fifthwall Radio.
