I'm semi-retired and work part-time teaching EMS and fire service classes at a community college. I also volunteer as a paramedic at a local fire department and rescue squad. I contribute articles for EMS, fire service, and law enforcement journals and write about true crime. My grandfather was a journalist and war corespondant in Europe during WWII. He also reported from the Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, Germany for the Chicago Daily News and consequently won the Pulitizer Prize for his Nuremberg Trials coverage.
