A Little About Me

I am a writer and an editor with online, book, blogging, and E-publishing experience. On these pages you will find a compendium of my online presence as well as samples of my fiction.

Writing is not only my passion but it is a skill that I have honed professionally for 15 years. I have an MFA in Writing from The New School University in New York City as well as a degree in Publishing from Emerson College. I pride myself on having invaluable skills such as an ear for company styles and the ability to mimic other people’s written voices. I have a varied freelance portfolio beginning with my work as an Editor at Brookview House,Inc. a nonprofit where I edited the newsletter, press releases, and all the communications materials uploaded to the company website. Later I wrote for Screenrant.com, one of the web’s most popular movie news websites.  My work for them can be found here: SCREENRANT.COM

Recently I discovered a passion for food writing and food sustainability issues and have been a contributor to Examiner.com as the New York Budget Meals Examiner since 2009 where I offer recipes for the budget and environmentally conscious cook.

I also enjoy writing about screenwriting and have work posted here and here at The Script Lab, an instructional website dedicated to screenwriting. But wait, there’s more! A sample of one of my novels is here.

And now I write for New York Minute Magazine. I write reviews of streaming television and film programming and I also write a lifestyle column about my wacky exploits living in New York City. Check it all out.

I wrote my first story when I was about 5 years old. Co-wrote it technically, with my dad and have been writing ever since.  I appreciate him getting me started that early. As the years have progressed I have learned that my passion for writing has been both a blessing and a curse.  For example, how does one distinguish oneself from the crowd? Especially when your “art” is something that everyone learns to do? So I pride myself on having invaluable skills that an untrained writer and editor do not possess such as an ear for a company’s style and the ability to mimic other people’s written voices.
