Writing:

I do freelance writing, editing and graphics. In 2014, I wrote the introduction for Meryl Meisler's book A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick which was featured on NewYorkTimes.com and NewYorker.com ("Meryl Meisler’s Disco Era"). In 2015, I wrote the intro for her second book, Purgatory & Paradise: Sassy '70s Suburbia & the City which was also featured on NewYorker.com ("Seventies Long Island: The Whole Mishpocha"), where unbelievably, I was quoted a second time. To see all the great press for these books, visit MerylMeisler.com.

I have created presentations for Citibank, the Ford Foundation and Applied Semiconductor, and written many articles for Professional Women Photographers. One of these, Sgt. Pepper Uncovered, was named by industry giant PhotoShelter to its list of Top Photography Blog Posts of 2011. In 2012, I created 30 by 30, a blog series for Women's History Month. In it thirty women photographers spoke about the women photographers who inspired them. Interviewees included esteemed critic Vicki Goldberg, triple Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times photographer Ruth Fremson, and Carnegie Hall legend Editta Sherman. (Please note that in the migration to a new website, many lost their original formatting and picked up a few strange characters.) I was a contributing editor to Imprints magazine, and have a personal blog/artist's diary at Photospire.org.

I've also written articles for Arts in Bushwick, including Manic Need and Human Preserverance: A Photographer Looks Back, Many Roads to Here: The Art of Kyle Mumford, and The Journey and Art of Scott Dennis.
