About Naomi

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. You can see some of my clips at http://naomifein.net.

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 life.

    I’m not surprised. I THINK I posted what happened with my disciplinary committee complaint against them but in case not: I went through the entire process (I know I posted every step). They’re decision was that my complaint was about fees — the settlement. It was not, but by that time I had enough of dealing with them and did not bother to tell the disciplinary committee they were wrong. In the end, I came to realize I’d chosen mediocre, factor-process lawyers for my case. I was astonished by their behavior because my experience with lawyers — not PI lawyers, to be sure — up to then was so good.
    One thing I knew going in to the disciplinary complaint process: it was unlikely I’d affect Dinkes’ status in any significant way. I did it because it was the right thing to do. My expectations were low and realistic.
