I'm originally from Connecticut, where I grew up in theater, surrounded by the workings of my mother's costume shop, a local business which started in our basement. I thought I'd be in theater forever, but I fell in love with comics during college at SUNY Purchase, where I earned my BA in Journalism. I continued to study publishing at Pace University, where I earned my MS in Book and Magazine Publishing.
Since then I've worked at Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Papercutz Graphic Novels, and Lion Forge Comics, as well as boutique YA literary development house Paper Lantern Lit (now Glasstown Entertainment), and I am a former partner at GeekChic Promotions. In addition to my private freelance clients, I currently work with Fantoons Animation's publishing line as an editor and consultant, as well as Iron Circus Comics as a print production coordinator.
I moved to Los Angeles from NYC in 2014 and yes, the weather is great. And, after all that, I still work in theater. Since transitioning to full-time entertainment production work in 2018, I have worked as a stage manager, production manager, PA, AD, and prop designer in addition to continuing my proofreading, print production and editorial work.
