I was born in Trenton, NJ and my family moved to northern Virginia when I was thirteen. Since then I've lived in Annapolis, MD, Paris, France and Brooklyn, NY. My husband and I currently live in Arlington, VA. We are the proud owners of Tybalt the whippet.

I greatly enjoy my work as a professional communicator. I am currently a Senior Communications Specialist/Team Lead with Creative Computing Solutions, Inc. Previously I was the Manager of Marketing & Communications for the American Intellectual Property Law Association. For three years I worked on freelance editing and writing as well as website content editing projects for various companies. Also during that time I was a part-time editor for McKinsey & Company. In 2003 I completed coursework in the Professional Certificate Program in Technical Communications at the American University in Paris. The 8-month course of study included documentation writing, online help software, web design, graphic design, and information design.

Outside of professional communications, I have many interests, which you can learn about by clicking here.
