I’m devoted to comedy and especially to writing dynamic roles for women 40+. I've worked as a journalist, teacher, and editor. My reviews have been published in the Village Voice, film journals, and alt weeklies. 

I have a master's degree from the Film Division at Columbia University. My thesis focused on films written by Preston Sturges. I’ve taught film history at colleges and developed a course on women in early film comedy. I also was awarded a writer's residency at the Ragdale Foundation and taught creative writing there.

Some of my favorite characters are Little Lulu, Trudy Kockenlocker, Miss Marple, Monsieur Hulot, Gladys Glover, Rufus T. Firefly, Morty S. Tashman, Torchy Blane, Egbert Sousé, Carlotta Vance, Hazel Burke, and Woodrow Lafayette Pershing Truesmith.

My top movie pick from the classic era is Theodora Goes Wild with Irene Dunne. 

Presently I’m working on an inheritance comedy, a heist story, and a TV pilot about night workers in Chicago.

I'm also working on a book that's an homage to 30s gangster comedies.
