I am a free lance writer based in the San Fernando Valley, a cozy 450-square mile bedroom community of two million close friends (some of whom are even legal residents) just over the hill north of Los Angeles and part of the City of Los Angeles.
For years we've been trying to break away from the "mother ship," because we have all the money; pay the richman's share of taxes, but receive a pauper's portion of city services.
I was a reporter/associate editor for the San Fernando Valley Chronicle for four years. That was followed by a two-year stint as editor of The Tolucan located on the outskirts of Beautiful Downtown Burbank.
My specialty is writing opinion pieces after finding interesting news stories, detailing the story to some extent, providing a link to the original story, and opining on it.
Whenever possible, I go for the humor, but sometimes it's necessary to go for the jugular.
