Bio

Hello.

I am a former Manhattanite who moved to New Paltz in November 2011 after leaving an editing job at the New York Daily News, where I worked for six years. I write for several top publications, including The New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler magazine and the Daily News, as well as local publications such as Chronogram and Ulster Magazine.

Hello.

I am a former Manhattanite who moved to New Paltz in November 2011 after leaving an editing job at the New York Daily News, where I worked for six years. I write for several top publications, including The New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler magazine and the Daily News, as well as local publications such as Chronogram and Ulster Magazine. I taught Introduction to Professional Writing at Marist College last fall and plan to teach on the college level again.

I attended a top private high school in Manhattan, followed by Johns Hopkins University, where I majored in English, and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, from which I received a master's degree in journalism.

I have always loved reading and writing, and this shows in my test scores: I netted a whopping 730 on the verbal portion of the SAT.

It would be my pleasure to help your child fulfill his or her potential in reading and writing and achieve academic success.
