I’m an award-winning freelance writer whose work has appeared in book anthologies, and The New York TimesMarie ClaireWoman’s DayThe FixForwardTablet and more. I’m a frequent speaker at writing and social media events including American Society of Journalists & Authors (ASJA) annual writers conference in New York, the National Publicity Summit, CUNY (City University of New York), Book Expo America, and as a member of the RAINN Speaker Bureau.

I’ve been a guest on CBS, CNN’s Dr. Drew, NY1 and ABC’s 7 On Your Side. In addition to TV and Video, I’ve been interviewed for podcasts, radio, articles in print and online . I’ve even got my own IMDb page. Woooot!

My essay for The Times, “Defriending My Rapist,” has become required reading for a CUNY victimology class and a Mediabistro essay class. I also write about movies and interview A-list celebrities including Steven Spielberg, Jodie Foster, Ryan Gosling, Michael K. Williams, Julianne Moore, Kirsten Dunst, and many more.

In addition to interviewing celebs and writing movie reviews, I write about addiction and recovery, PTSD, pop culture, politics, women and empowerment. And my short stories appear in eight book anthologies.
