I am a writer and editor. I also have many years experience conducting cultural-historical research, teaching, performing, and creating and implementing innovative humanities, arts, educational, and public health programs In 1997, I started my freelance writing, editing, and research consulting business, providing a variety of writing, editing, and qualitative research services to businesses in and around Philadelphia. I wrote articles and reports and developed promotional materials for national publications on a variety of topics including Jewish radicalism, urban school reform, and AIDS. For 6 years, I directed a multi-year oral history project of the Sholom Aleichem Club, one of the last surviving organizations within Philadelphia’s Yiddish-left community. I was primarily interested in providing a starting point for a more extensive inquiry into and documentation of Philadelphia’s Jewish and left-wing history, filling the gap in existing scholarship about Philadelphia’s progressive Jewish history For 11 years, I worked as a teaching artist, developing and conducting children’s literature and theater arts residencies for children and youth, 7-15 years-old, by guiding students through all phases of developing, writing, and performing plays based on their favorite stories and myths. I also conducted training workshops for elementary, middle, and high school educators in using literature and mythology to facilitate original playwriting with students. . I enjoy working with a wide range of communities to address a variety of writing needs. Besides my experience writing non-fiction, I also recently began working on my first short story. I am excited about working with the Humans community. I look forward to connecting.
