Who Is Del Moon?

PR guy and feature writer. Event road warrior. Former print and broadcast arts and entertainment journalist. Father and husband. Cancer survivor. LSU Tiger. Food lover. Pun generator. And now accidental senior athlete. Del followed his father’s advice to “be a generalist. Learn a little about everything and you will be able to do almost anything.” There was method in the madness of a crazy quilt career dotted with soaring successes and spectacular crashes, and he’s still walking. All of these experiences have contributed to his mission-driven work with the National Senior Games Association since 2013.
