My writing bug first appeared when I was seven years old and I wrote my first "book." I don't remember the title, but it was about how the stars in the sky were made. Not the scientific, correct version, but a fantastical tale about magic sand being tossed about the sky. As I got older, I found myself drawn to creative nonfiction and personal essay, leading me to earn my MFA from Lesley University in 2008.
I am now a full-time freelance writer living in Newton, Massachusetts, with my husband and baby daughter. My writing focuses on being a new mom, relationships, childhood memories of growing up in NYC, humor, and healthy living. My writing has appeared in the Washington Post, Vice Motherboard, BabyCenter, PregnantChicken, and BleedingCool. Print publications include Barista Magazine and Vineyard Style Magazine.
When not devouring a book (usually a memoir), I enjoy contemporary and modern dance, cooking, photography, kvetching, and taking my daughter to the library. You can never start too early. I mean the library, not the kvetching.
