Managing editor of a daily U.S. newspaper. Former managing editor and editor-in-chief of nationally circulated U.S. magazines, including Gun World, Knives Illustrated, Bow and Arrow Hunting and Gun Games, America’s shooting sports magazine. Former publisher of The Senior Chronicle, America’s largest-circulation newspaper for seniors, and former owner of weekly newspapers in Southern California. Worked as news editor, Page One and features designer, senior copy editor, universal copy desk chief, editor and editorial board member of daily newspapers in California, Texas, New Jersey, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Alaska. He was editor-in-chief of several U.S. weekly newspapers. He covered Southeast Asia as a foreign correspondent for Asahi Shimbun, Japan’s most influential and world’s largest daily; and head of bureau and chief editor of the English wire service of EFE, Spain’s international news agency. He covered massacres, assassinations, volcanic eruptions, major earthquakes, gunbattles between soldiers and secessionist rebels, military-guerrilla clashes, typhoons and bloody coup attempts. One of his investigative reports led to a fact-finding board’s conclusion that the 1983 airport assassination of Sen. Benigno Aquino was a result of a wide-ranging military conspiracy involving Philippine military chief Gen. Fabian Ver. He reported that the gun allegedly used by the government-tagged hitman was owned by an air force general. He was a special correspondent for the Associated Press (AP), Kyodo News Service of Japan, Bernama (the Malaysian News Agency) and Xinhua (China News Service). He became a U.S. citizen after being honored by the U.S. Department of Justice as a “Journalist of Extraordinary Ability.” He is fascinated with huge cast nets and will not go fishing without one − or two. He’s not a Russian spy. Never worked for ATF, FBI, CSI, CNN. Always respectful, always speaks softly and doesn’t carry a big stick. He avoids bad guys with guns. He was, however, a speed shooter.
