Professional Experience

I'm an impeccable line editor, a graceful writer, sensitive interviewer and wordsmith extraordinaire, specializing in food, travel, theater, entertainment, fashion, beauty, lifestyle and relationships, as well as anything to do with New York City. In fact, I've written and/or edited NYC-centric pieces on everything from penthouse properties for sale to ancient artifacts unearthed in Lower Manhattan, and from subterranean neo-speakeasies to rooftop-garden-to-table micro greens. After spending 20+ years as a magazine editor, mainly fixing up other people's writing, I'm resuming my freelance career. Please call upon me for short-form or long-form assignments, freelance or full-time projects.

For 12 years, I wrote a monthly column on fine food and good libations in New York City. Here's an example.

(GuestBook New York 1/1/2012)
Perhaps the sweetest word in the culinary lexicon, "dessert" represents tempation, indulgence and pure, unadulterated pleasure. Here, four top pastry chefs present their magnificent confections.
