Hey, thanks for stopping by. I’m a writer and a former journalist. My writing has been published in The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Moscow Times, Quartz, Dow Jones Newswires, Scary Mommy, Kveller, Babble.com, Brit+Co, Volume 1 Brooklyn and others, winning awards from the New York Press Association. During the day, I help others craft their own stories. Though I once taught English to urban college students and pot smoking art school kids, none of this prepared me for the two rascals of my own. When in doubt, I make borscht and talk about “Back in Soviet Russia…” Would love to hear from you.
