A Writer Writes
I'm a writing professional. Writing is pretty much all I do, except for teaching the occasional writing class. I taught English as a Second Language for 14 years to NYC adults -- mostly here in Brooklyn. Oh yeah, writing and playing poker.
I'm self-employed, which means I spend a portion of my time looking for jobs. I'm a very self-motivated individual, so it's not hard for me to conform to a schedule: Up by 7:30 a.m. and work on projects until the evening.
As an independent writing professional, I create compelling content that informs and educates. I craft clear, concise content on a variety of subjects, including aging, healthcare, wellness, safety, and corporate governance. I write feature articles, news articles, profiles, Web content, plays, monologues, humor, short fiction, and memoir. I won the 2017 Mona Schreiber Prize for Humorous Fiction and Nonfiction. I'm a lifetime member of The Dramatists Guild of America.
My first publication appeared in the Cleveland Plain Dealer on the twentieth anniversary of the Kent State University shootings. I wrote this Op-Ed piece while working as a fact-checker at Whittle Communications in Knoxville, Tennessee.
My portfolio includes more than 150 published articles. I've written for Live Well, NextAvenue.org, Corporate Secretary, GEICO Direct, Your AAA, Unique Opportunities: The Physician's Resource, POZ Latino, Family Safety & Health, Safedriver, Safeworker, Every Second Counts, Today's Supervisor, Disease Management, CATS Magazine, The International Centre for Women Playwrights, The Knoxville News-Sentinel, Practice Link, and The Alzheimer's Association.
