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.


About Me

What I Do

 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 Writing Roots

     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 Experience

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.
