Born in Philadelphia and raised in South Jersey, I went to college in North Carolina (Chapel Hill) before moving to Madrid, Spain for two years. In 2013 I relocated to Manhattan, where I currently reside in a one-bedroom, one-closet apartment. It’s small, but you can’t beat the location. Such is New York.
Professionally, I have worked in broadcast, print and sports journalism, advertising and corporate communications, TV and film production, education and even hospitality (read: I can mix a mean martini and carry trays and glassware like a ninja). I have worked for/with ESPN, Allergan Pharmaceuticals, Pabst Blue Ribbon, KFC, the North Carolina Tar Heels, the Philadelphia Union, Stephen David Entertainment, altered image, Means of Productions Films, the Family Medicine Education Consortium and WRAL North Carolina TV. My work has been published by ABC News On Campus, Thrillist.com, The Jewish Daily Forward, Elite Daily, Image Curve, Human Parts (on Medium) and others. I speak English and Spanish fluently, and Hebrew and Italian horribly. I’ve also written a novel and a TV pilot — stay tuned for those.
On this web site you will find examples of my work. As with any storyteller’s work, each of my stories contains pieces of me — my thoughts, emotions and
poor attempts at humor. In my work, I focus on aspects of life that often go unnoticed in an effort to change the way people think, act and see the world. The beauty is always there — all we have to do is look for it.
