As a kid growing up in New Jersey, I was spellbound by masterfully written stories. After school, for hours, I’d read and study the craft of all types of writing—fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, screenwriting, business writing—and the elements of grammar and style. Five days after I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in creative writing, I moved to Manhattan to work at Gotham Writers Workshop, the premier adult education creative writing school in New York City; not long after that, I embarked on a freelance career.
Since then, I’ve taught over 350 hours of grammar, business writing, and creative writing workshops at Bryant Park, McNally Jackson Books, WORD Books, homeless shelters and schools around the United States, and other places. I’ve also written and edited an extensive range of business writing and nonfiction, including website copy, class curriculums, profiles, bios, social media copy, press releases, newsletters, grants, memoirs, and nonfiction books. I recently wrote the curriculum for Grammar II: Expertise and Finesse, a One-day Intensive at Gotham.
And now…I happily reside in San Marcos, Texas, where I continue to collaborate with a rainbow of organizations and people from all walks of life—from animal sanctuaries to celebrity fitness instructors to CJ Wallace, the son of Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace.
