Bring us up to speed.

Launched a business and newsroom consulting company 5 years ago. I help businesses with crisis communications strategy and work with newsrooms to improve their journalism and business strategy. Been living in Texas for all but a year since leaving WFB and going to school at UT. I spent 10 years in Houston working in TV news and then launched 2 news organizations in Austin.

Olga and I were married in 1988 and were blessed with identical twins in 1991. They're 27 now and working and living independently.

In my career I covered the San Francisco earthquake, a dozen hurricanes, a full solar eclipse in Oaxaca, Mexico, two NBA titles, one NCAA football national championship (only one damn it), 5 national political conventions, the Bush Inauguration, and spent 40 days at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco.

Any favorite high school teachers? What do you remember about them?

Wow... trip to Jamaica... check out the photos on Facebook. God I drank a lot that trip... don't tell my kids! Body paint... lots of it. A beard and mustache in high school. I grew it for theater and I wore that mustache for 20 years, my wife still misses it, I don't!

List two (2) favorite present songs and (2) favorite songs from high school.

Life's Been Good - Joe Walsh
Paradise by the Dashboard Light - Meatloaf
