For over 30 years, Donald has successfully written for a variety of media. He writes clearly and succinctly. He carefully selects his words for the desired audience, following the traditional canons of fine writing when appropriate, yet breaking the rules as necessary for more informal writing such as film or TV dialogue.
After college, Donald's first full time job was as a radio copywriter writing hundreds of commercials. His later experiences as a radio news writer, university professor and documentary filmmaker continue to inform his writing process. His storytelling has encompassed the subjects of history, politics, history, health care, education, science, travel, religion, and music.
