My own story isn't linear, rather a collection of experiences. I've worked backstage, on the selling floor, or glued to a phone as a fundraiser, but my best work has always been at the keyboard.
As an arts administrator, I've written and produced brochures and direct mail pieces for The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The New York Public Library, La Jolla Chamber Music Society and The New York Pops, among others. As a freelancer, I've created an extensive amount of web content, handled delicate corporate communications, written articles for trade publications, and copywritten numerous direct mail pieces. I've edited essays, brochures and full-length novels.
I received my BA in History at Mills College, a small, intense liberal arts school where my skills were forged under the tutelage of sharp-tongued professors. My first professional credits were for a daily real-estate newspaper in the Bay Area. I thank my lucky stars for this fast-paced, out-of-the-frying-pan experience; over those six months I honed my ability to research, interview and find fresh and interesting stories in even the most well-worn subjects.
I spent ten years in the non-profit world as a concert producer, event manager and fundraiser. In addition, I have been a bookseller, served as an admissions representative, cataloged a vintage clothing collection and interned at a German house of parliament. I'm an excellent cook, avid seamstress, competent sailor and a truly bad athlete.
I love my work. I get to meet new people, discover their interests and
help them spread the word. Everyone has a story — let me tell yours.
