“When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.”

– Barbara Bloom


My life is one with many cracks. Deep crevasses that seemed to go on for miles now streak my existence with golden light. I write about my raw, ugly, imperfectly perfect life and find solace in the thought that sharing my truth will pave the way for others to find beauty hidden in their own adversity.

I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and spent ten years as a marketing executive before pursuing my passion for writing creative nonfiction. I work closely with writing coaches, critique groups, and attend literary craft classes. My current work-in-progress is a memoir regarding my treatment under a psychoanalyst convicted of fraud.
