I've been an arts journalist since 1993. Until it folded as a print publication, I was deputy cultural editor of The New York Sun, where I wrote about the two areas of the arts closest to my heart: theater and books.
I fell into arts journalism -- in fact, I was pushed -- when I was a baby journalist on Cape Cod. Since then, I've been the founding editor of a small-town Massachusetts broadsheet, spent a longish stretch as arts editor of the New Haven Register in Connecticut, and written extensively on the arts: news, features and criticism.
As a freelancer, I've written for the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Newsday, American Theatre, the Forward, Tablet and other publications, and I'm a contributing news editor for ArtsJournal. In 2005, I was a National Arts Journalism Program fellow at Columbia University. I'm a member of the NAJP board, and I edit the NAJP's group blog, ARTicles.
