In composing...run your pen through every other word you have written; you have no idea what vigor it will give your style.
(Sydney Smith)

résumé

Ihave a long résumé that covers my education, writing projects (for theatre as well as a freelance writer and photographer and teacher), and you are welcome to read it in its entirety (done as a PDF).

However, for those of you who prefer a quicker read, I've composed a briefer document (it will open in a new window).

My background in writing is both wide and deep. I have degrees from Harvard College, Cornell Univeristy, and New York University, ranging from American History and Literature to an MFA in dramatic writing.

I have taught basic composition classes for many years to adults in continuing education and community college (a course I delight in teaching). I ran my own freelance writing business, Full Court Press, where, like the Beatles’ “Paperback Writer,” I made my work as long or as short as the client wanted. (Such freelance work is both humbling and instructive, or, better said, instructive because humbling).

I have garnered awards for my theatre scripts and screenplays, and run a company with Elfin Vogel, Block & Tackle Productions. I have a monthly column in an arts-oriented online publication, Scene4. And so much more. (If you've a great deal of time on your hands, you can read more of my work).
