  With 25 years as a journalist for significant New England newspapers,
Bob Datz captures the texture of life along with flash of events.
Based in Massachusetts, he's gained the most satisfaction from taking the road
that needed to be traveled.

News beats and freelance pieces have brought his readers to the front of issues
they may not have faced before. The works speak for themselves. Link to samples by clicking the images to the right.

As a hands-on editor, Bob spent many years viewing writing from both sides.
"I'd like to think I make life easier for editors and more revealing for readers," he says.
