I double-majored at the University of Rochester, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2008 with honors in English and Brain & Cognitive Sciences. My English concentration was in Creative Writing.
I worked for the global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. for more than six years in both editorial and marketing roles. Consequently, I am especially familiar with the publishing requirements and processes for academic books and journals.
I belong to Jersey City Writers (JCW) and moderate The Full Story, a JCW subgroup that specifically supports novelists. I’m also a 2:53 hour marathon runner, 5:43 half ironman triathlete, beginner knitter, and half-decent chocolate chip cookie baker, among other things.
