I am a writer, editor, literary translator.

I've done good work for Holt, Rinehart & Winston; Berlitz International; Fireflies & Preston Media;The Sewanee Review; The New School; and The News of Orange; and Surreal Poetics, among others.

I edit books, too. Among them: "Significant: From Frustrated to Frannetastic", by Franne McNeal, MBA; "City of Cats", by San Francisco author Max Diksztejn; and the quarterly magazine, The Westchester Wedding Planner.

Back in the 80s I was Assistant Publicity Director at Sports Illustrated Magazine, where I wrote promotional copy and arranged media interviews for writers like Frank Deford, Robert "Dr. Z" Zimmerman, and Franz Lidz, among others. I was also scriptwriter and Producer of the Time World News Service Radio Hour.

I am fluent in Spanish, and I teach students in private, corporate, and university settings, generally in the online synchronous environment. I care about words and meaningful translation of messages and literary works.

In my work in the MFA program at The Sewanee School of Letters, I have studied with Dr. Ron Briggs of Columbia University; Dr. Jennifer Lewin of the University of Haifa; Dr. Mark Rasmussen, Charles J. Luellen Professor of English at Centre College; John Ernest, Judge Hugh M. Morris Professor of English and Director of the English Department at the University of Delaware; novelists Adrianne Harun and Holly Goddard Jones; Neil Shea of National Geographic. This year, I'm writing a collection of my own short stories now under the direction of novelist Michael Griffith (Spikes, Bibliophilia).

I believe in the power of beautiful, well-considered writing to do great good in the world.
