Jack's professional bio ...

 

While still in college Jack worked as a reporter for The Hartford Courant, the oldest continuously published newspaper in America. This led to stints in printing and typesetting, skills which helped in his copywriting career.

 

While a copywriter, Jack pursued journalism as a sideline. He interviewed former HEW Secretary Joseph Califano; Pulitzer Prize-winning author-historians Harrison E. Salisbury and John Toland; playwright Arthur Miller; his wife, photojournalist Inge Morath; and hundreds of other notables. Jack is former News Editor, now Correspondent, for The Catholic Transcript, the official newspaper (now in glossy magazine format) of the Archdiocese of Hartford.

 

In recent years he has worked with now-published authors on their books-in-progress, editing for style, content and technical aspects. As a media consultant, he writes web, Facebook and print content for the Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory in Torrington, CT.
