I am a graduate of the School of Visual Arts' MFA in Art Criticism and Writing program. Though the name of this degree denotes expertise in a highly specialized field, I have been writing all of my life in various genres and styles. I first published a poem at age 7 in the local newspaper, and since then I have written extensively in the forms of fiction, general non-fiction, and poetry as well. I have written anything from a simple novella to scientific laboratory reports and of course undergraduate and graduate theses. I have also generated copy for press releases (mostly for art galleries and other arts-related establishments), advertisements, pamphlets, and newsletters. You name it, I can do it and do it well.
