Professional Experience

Experienced freelance reporter and editor who has covered the latest trends from the rise of male nannies to the lengths and expense dog owners will go to pamper their pooch, for publications including CNBC.com, Worth magazine, and Crain's New York Business. I also edit special sections, come up with the story ideas and assign and edit the work. For 12 years I covered the business of arts and culture in New York City, philanthropy, higher education, nonprofits and the theater industry at Crain's New York Business, where I broke stories on the arts institutions involved in the rebuilding of Ground Zero, trends in the theater industry, and the finances of New York's major cultural institutions. I also edited lifestyle sections and helped choose the candidates for Crain's popular "40 under 40" and "top Women in Business" issues. I launched Crain's society coverage. And I was a regular guest on cultural stories on NPR and Fox News.
