BIO

Armed with an MFA from Boston University I plowed my way through several productive careers in the arts including Instructor in Drawing and painting, Dean of Admissions at The Art Institute of Boston, President of Documentary Educational Resources - a film company. I finally have lived long enough to have something to write about and I now can say “I am a writer.”

Since 2009 I’ve been a contributing editor for Documentary Magazine. In addition, serving as a contributing writer for Vermont Woman magazine, Art New England and the Vermont Art Guide. I regularly exercise my skills in writing non-fiction, and attempt to make everything I write engaging and personal, showing the fragility and heroism that is part of everyday life.  I believe all writing is implicitly about relationship building between the writer and the reader. 

As a member of the Burlington Writers Workshop I have had creative non-fiction published in the 2014, 2016 and 2017 anthology The Best of the Burlington Writers Workshop, and have had essays published in various literary journals from 2013-2017. I was the inaugural art editor for the literary and art journal Mud Season Review launched in 2014 and I blog for The Flynn Theater in Burlington, Vt.

I live two blocks from Bernie Sanders in Burlington, Vermont with my 110 pound St. Bernard/Golden Retriever, Ethel.
