- Award Winning Journalist, Author & Commentator for Print & Broadcast- News, Opinions, Blogs
- As an investigative journalist, writer and commentator for News, columns and Op Eds for national publications and media outlets, I have covered issues including politics, domestic violence, societal concerns of women and men; parenting and children; race and culture, and many more passionately-charged social and human rights issues.
While I have enjoyed most of my career as a hard-hitting investigative journalist, I now primarily write Op Ed's, political satire, essays and humor as well as commentary for radio and television.
These include humorous and reflective essays about my Japanese and Jewish background and culture. Recent work includes essays for the National Japanese-American Museum. One article that was published for The Huffington Post called "Japanese Jew Doesn't Oy-Veh so Much Since Obama" will be part of an exhibit at the museum as part of the Hapa-Japan experience in Los Angeles.
My work has been published for The Chicago Sun Times, The Huffington Post, Empowering Parents.com, Elephant Journal.com, The Jewish Journal of Los Angeles, Open Salon, USA Riseup, The Jewish News Weekly of San Francisco, Discover Nikkei.org, Senses magazine, The Benicia Herald, The Daily Buzz, Interfaithfamily, Babyzone, The Syndicated News, and for many other publications.
In addition to print journalism, I have appeared on several syndicated national talk radio programs, including for CBS Radio, Fox News and other stations to discuss politics, parenting, anti-aging/health as well as comedy appearances about pop culture.
I have also started my career as a commentator, comedian and advice-giver for television. Most recently, I appeared on "The Daily Buzz "and on "Life, Love, Shopping", a national syndicated talk show show for the WE network with more appearances in the works. I am also working on two different pilots for television.
Journalism awards include The Edward R. Murrow award, two Golden Mike awards, four Society of Professional Journalists First awards and The Los Angeles Press Club. Awards were granted for Excellence in Reporting for both print and broadcast reporting.
