About Me

Click here for a blog post containing all of the Essential Information about me.


I am a woman of many identities. Some might say too many.

I have been a professional writer since I was 17 years old as a teen reporter in Syracuse, NY, when I cracked a front page news story in my local paper, garnering national attention.

But there's lots more that I do—public speaking at a variety of conferences and meetings; freelancing as a field agent for Atlas Obscura, ghostwriter, proofreader, copyeditor, paralegal, leasing agent, building manager; volunteering on the board of the Los Angeles City Historical Society; and participating as a member or former member of The Los Angeles Breakfast Club, Friends of Rockhaven, LA Conservancy, Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, and Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley.
