I’m a writer, covering issues related to lifestyle, parenting and immigrant identity. I formerly worked as a college writing instructor and journalist on both U.S. coasts (with a brief stint in Russia), winning awards from the New York Press Association.
My essays, stories and articles have been published in The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, The Moscow Times, Quartz, Dow Jones Newswires, Scary Mommy, Kveller, Babble, Brit+Co, Volume 1 Brooklyn, Ravishly and others. I am currently working on a book.
During the day, I help others craft their own stories. Often, I make too much borscht, hoping my two toddlers will eat it.
