MY WRITING / MY WORK

GET TO KNOW ME

Favorite Hobbies?

Exploring a new place, checking out a cool art exhibit and (grudgingly) hiking with my husband, two kids and dog in the Catskills.

Why do I love NYC?
Because it’s never boring. Also, the people are kind, cool and weird in the best way.

THIS OR THAT

Call or Text?

 Text! Is this even a debate anymore?

Headphones or Speakers?

Headphones. There’s nothing better than hearing a great song, a great book or a great friend right in your ear.
