His news background includes stints at The Nation as an editorial intern, The New Leader as associate editor, CES Publishing as editor and writer, and New York Newsday as a business reporter. His freelance articles have appeared in many publications. In 1991 he was awarded The New York Times Fellowship in Law at Columbia University School of Law. At Columbia he was a Harlan Fiske Stone scholar, a Human Rights Fellow at Article 19, the anti-censorship organization based in London, and staff editor of a law journal devoted to the arts. After passing the bar, he worked as a litigation associate at Patterson, Belknap, Webb & Tyler LLP in New York City, specializing in commercial litigation and media law.
