I live in Manhattan, New York and on Long Beach Island (a barrier island off the coast of New Jersey). These are two very different venues but they symbolize the many aspects of my character and experiences. Currently, I am the Executive Director of Dignity U Wear, a nonprofit organization. Under my own press, Fragile Twilight Press, I published four collections of poetry, In Fragile Twilight, Beyond the Seventh Poinsettia, Moonflowers, and In Tribes of Running Rain. In addition a collection of my poetry was published in 2009 in Vol. III of the Bakers Dozen, published by the Cole Foundation for the Arts. In 2015, I was published in an anthology called Oh Sister, My Sister. I hold a BA in English and an MS in Management.
