Who I Am  

A Little About Me

A New Yorker who lived in Los Angeles and moved to Austin. Started a boutique marketing/PR company organically in 2010 after a successful dozen years as a journalist and editor at daily newspapers, celebrity weeklies and monthly magazines. Currently Editor of Austin Life Magazine and shopping my first novel...A friend, daughter, sister and endorphin chaser. One of the odd ones who really does 'like to workout' and loves a long plane ride. A traveler, dog lover, forever student, hopeless romantic, reader, writer and deeply grateful girl trying every day to make this story of my life a good one.


Interesting Factoid

I still write my To Do List every day with brightly colored scented markers and every day it makes me happy.
