My Biography

He worked for the Greenwich Time in Fairfield County for six years, covering politics, police, polo, and personalities from attorney Roy Cohn to hotel magnate Leona Helmsley. He joined The Hartford Courant in late 1990 after the election of Lowell P. Weicker, Jr. He has been working at the state Capitol for most of the time since January 1993 during the Weicker administration, except for stints in the Enfield bureau, on the business desk, and covering the courts fulltime for 18 months in 2001 and 2002.
