For the past 30 years, my writing experience has included a wide variety of genres - from humorous newspaper columns to screenplays and stage plays, from video scripts to commercials. When possible and appropriate, I've tended to focus more and more on humor. In the future, I hope to continue to explore the effectiveness of humor in communications, both in business and in the arts .
