My Photo


After graduation from Stanford and Stanford Law School, I practiced law as a private attorney and a corporate counsel in Los Angeles for many years. Along the way my life took an unexpected turn as I became involved in various journalistic projects. Between 1988 and 2016 I worked as a reporter and photographer on the floor of all 16 Democratic and Republican National Conventions and in 2017 at the Presidential Inauguration. In the 1990s I produced and hosted a cable TV interview and documentary program in Los Angeles titled Ed Anderson’s Journal. My guests were mainly politicians and writers. One episode, an oral history “Deportation to Siberia: The Story of Laima Veckalne Linalaid,” was taped in Latvia and broadcast on Latvian State Television. The written version (originally published on FrontPageMagazine and later expanded by The Baltic Times) can be found online by searching for “One Story of Deportation to the Death Camps of Siberia.” More recently I have contributed to the higher education website MindingTheCampus and (in English) to Laiks, a U.S.-based Latvian newspaper.
