Verified identity


I'm a writer and a blogger, author of 300+ articles, essays, speeches and columns, and am working on several books while actively engaged in editing self-help, memoir, and educational (textbook and audio book) titles for NY publishing houses and for authors in the U.S., Australia and Mexico. Arts and culture, women's issues, travel and personal growth are special areas of interest. I teach classes on social media for beginners and was a public relations consultant to Fortune 50 companies for 20 years. I've hosted three radio programs: one on business, one about the single life and relationships, and one about visual and performing arts. For fun I host bilingual karaoke shows twice a week.
