My Broadcasting Career began during my undergraduate years, when I was news director for Connecticut College WCNI-FM. I was an intern at WHDH-AM, Boston and WNLC-AM, New London, Connecticut. I worked as a morning news co-anchor at WKOX-AM, Framingham, Massachusetts. While in graduate school, I was weekend editor at Ohio State University National Public Radio Affiliate, WOSU-AM/FM.
From 1981-1994, I was a Surface Line Officer in the United States Navy on both ships and ashore, to include service with International Peacekeeping Forces Lebanon, Operation Desert Storm and on the USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67) and USS Miller (FF 1091). I became a Navy Public Affairs Officer (PAO) in 1995, after serving as the Naval Base Public Affairs Officer at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba during Operation Sea Signal. I hosted the radio show "Good Evening GTMO." In 1996, I became the final Public Affairs Officer on the USS America (CV 66), also returning to the USS Kennedy in 1996, this time as ship's PAO. I moved on to be a PAO at Bethesda Naval Hospital, Naval Sea Systems Command and North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Supreme Allied Command Atlantic NATO (SACLANT), where I was stationed during Operation Enduring Freedom.
I currently host podcasts for the Update-1 Program at the National Press Club, Washington, D.C. I periodically serve as co-host on the Nora Firestone Show, WKQA Freedom 1110 AM, Norfolk, Virginia. I also work in voice over recording and as master of ceremonies for charitable, veteran and community related events. Amidst my broadcasting career, I continue as an advocate for Veterans with the Military Officers Association of America.
Along with my Navy career of 25 years as both a Surface Line and Public Affairs Officer, my passion remains interviewing and broadcast journalism.

“I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.”
Dorie Miller was an American sailor in the United States Navy. With no training, he mannned anti-aircraft guns during the Pearl Harbor Attack on December 7, 1941, also tending tending to the wounded. He was recognized by the Navy for his actions and awarded the Navy Cross.
He was the first African American awarded the Navy Cross, the second highest decoration for valor in the Navy. Two years after Pearl Harbor, he was killed when his ship Liscome Bay was sunk by a Japanese submarine during the Battle of Makin.
Commissioned in 1965, USS America (CV-66) was one of three Kitty Hawk-class aircraft carriers launched for the United States Navy in the 1960s.
