Ben, a loving Labrador pit bull mix who taught me the specialness of dogs and inspired me to adopt my own, was put down this morning after the pain from his cancer ridden body became too much to bear. I’m forever grateful for the gift he left me.
I’m a journalist and television pilot writer. I previously was president of a New York City-based PR and crisis communications firm. Earlier, I was a business reporter with major newspapers in the U.S. and Canada. I also worked as an advertising copywriter. Born and raised in Toronto, I’ve lived in London (the one famous for snowsqualls), Montreal, Boston, Detroit, New York, San Francisco, and Marin County. I post regularly on LinkedIn and can be reached at:
