I am a poet and prose writer. My poetry has been awarded a grant from the Fulbright Scholar Program and has appeared in numerous venues. I am currently completing a memoir on chronic illness and I periodically publish essays and opinion pieces.
When not writing, I dance Argentine tango and I love to sing. My great dream was to be a back-up singer for Leonard Cohen. I had to settle for writing, but I will keep dreaming, even as he is physically gone.
