After nearly a decade lurking around the fringes of a literary life, I have finally decided to "out" myself as a writer. Since 2009 my articles, reviews, and essays have appeared in a variety of publications. My efforts have earned me the title of contributing editor on the masthead of Documentary Magazine, a publication of the International Documentary Association, and I'm a regular contributing writer to several other publications. On this website I have attempted to provide access to a selection of my previously published work. All the articles were published in print on paper, with some also in the online versions of those same publications. If you are an editor looking for a freelance writer and you like what you read here, contact me. I'm always eager to dive into new ventures.
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, Vermont Art Guide, Artists Magazine and Art & Object. 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 and anthologies from 2013-2019. 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.
