I am a third-generation journalist, and have been a reporter and copy editor pretty well my entire life. I was bureau chief of United Press International in Saigon at the communist victory, and then moved to Thailand, where I also was bureau chief of UPI. As a reporter, I have covered the police beat, Olympics and 11 wars -- for starters.
I produce fast, concise, super-accurate and readable copy, and I never miss deadlines.
I have written books on Vietnam and Southeast Asia. I wrote a major account of the 1975 communist victory called "55 Days: The Fall of South Vietnam".
My core expertise is Southeast Asia, and the general subjects of politics, terrorism and general international crime such as drug and human trafficking, and cross-border crime of all types.
