A little about me
I'm a writer based on Long Island, NY. My regular beats are boobs, food, and culture - but am known to stray down the rabbit holes of funeral rituals, female psychopaths, and subway ads. In a past life, I was a professional pickaxer, coffee bagger, and salad slinger.
My present life as a writer (and focus on boobs) was determined by my carrying a BRCA genetic mutation, which you'll read about when you scroll down.
While studying at NYU, I was loud, opinionated, and political; I published a white paper on the fight for water in the Colorado River Basin and worked on a micro-loan project in Rwanda with the UNDP. In between all that, I built potable water systems & taught public health in rural Honduras. I'm still loud, opinionated, and political, but my work is more balanced (when it needs to be).
I'm available to write for you (under my name - or yours). Email me.
