My writing has appeared in Condé Nast Traveler, The New York Times, Opera News and other journals and magazines. I’ve published social satire, fiction and pieces on professional football, Venetian floods, Jewish woman boxer “The Zion Lion,” and heretics John Thomas Scopes and Galileo. One especially monumental piece combines Wagner’s Ring Cycle, a performance of “Don Giovanni,” and a lousy football game.

I was born on 29th Street in Manhattan, first child of one ex-Trotskyist and one proto-feminist with hair down to her waist. At various times and for various educational purposes, I attended the Juilliard School, Oberlin College, Columbia University and the Speedwriting Institute. I have lived, worked in and loved New York City my entire adult life.
