At Barnard College, I majored in Program in the Arts: Writing. My focus was on playwriting, and a short play I wrote during that time won the school’s Helen Prince Memorial Prize for Dramatic Composition . My first full-length play, “Do Hermaphrodites Reproduce Only in the Spring?” was a finalist in the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center Competition, and was scheduled for production twice: the first time, the theater owner died, and the season was shut down; the second time, the director committed suicide. For the benefit of the arts community, I thought it best to get out of playwriting.
But economic necessity drove me to get a real (read ‘paying’) job, and I spent fifteen years in marketing and public relation positions with consumer product, high-tech and health care companies. Somewhere between these jobs, I returned to school and earned my M.B.A. from Yale School of Organization and Management.
When I returned to writing, I found that my interests had shifted to narrative non-fiction, as in The Accidental Anarchist. I also write personal essays and articles, business plans and marketing materials, and assist with college application essays.
