Bio

Hello, and thanks so much for your interest in me. I’ve been writing since I was a kid and it has been my whole professional life: writing/producing for TV News and Magazine shows in LA- and for PBS in Seattle, writing for newspapers and magazines about travel and issues of religion and faith (New York Times, Newsweek, Coastal Living, among others), and writing/producing for interactive media.

Hello, and thanks so much for your interest in me. I’ve been writing since I was a kid and it has been my whole professional life: writing/producing for TV News and Magazine shows in LA- and for PBS in Seattle, writing for newspapers and magazines about travel and issues of religion and faith (New York Times, Newsweek, Coastal Living, among others), and writing/producing for interactive media.

Writing is about communicating with other people – putting words (thoughts) together so readers understand what you’d like them to know. The biggest mistake people make with writing is they think they’ve said what they are thinking, but haven’t. Somehow their thoughts didn’t make it coherently from their mind – to the printed word. So the writer knows what s/he wants to say, but not the reader. I can help you with this.

I’ve taught writing at College of San Mateo, San Francisco State, and UC Extension. I’ve also tutored writing at 826 Valencia in SF, at The Branson School’s summer program for middle school kids in Marin, and for a few private students attending Lick Wilmerding High School in SF. I also teach advanced writing to foreign students at Dominican University and have my TESOL-ESL teaching certification.

I have my MA in Journalism and my BA in Art. I worked during college at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles and wrote about art for a Los Angeles newspaper. So I can tutor in Art as well as religion, and video production.

History

Religion

I've specialized in writing on issues of religion, spirituality and faith for the past decade. My writing on these subjects has appeared in The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, The Dallas Morning News, Newsweek, and Spirituality and Health Magazine. I completed a three year training in Spiritual Direction at The Mercy Center in Burlingame, California and I also completed a one-year training as an interfaith hospital chaplain in Marin County. While not an academic, I have a strong interest in this area of knowledge. I belong to a Jewish synagogue and practice mindfulness meditation, through Spirit Rock Meditation Center - a Buddhist based organization. I have been a member of the Religion Newswriters Association - a national organization of people who report on religion for America's media.
