I'm the author of four books, a journalist with bylines in top U.S. periodicals, playwright, amateur pianist and swing dancer.

Books include “Beam Me Up, Jesus” and “Who Moved My Secret?” Publications list includes: Salon, The New Republic, Washington Post Book World (in which I reviewed books about music), Huffington Post, Boston Review, Art & Antiques, N.J. Monthly. Performed as a swing dancer in the 1st New York Fringe Festival in the late 1990s. Achieved “Jazz Scholar” status at Swing University at Jazz at Lincoln Center. I had the great fortune to see and/or meet Teddy Wilson, Benny Carter, Lionel Hampton, Count Basie, Dexter Gordon, Sonny Stitt, Harold Nicholas and many other legendary musicians and dancers.
