Personal Information
Additional Information
  In addition to writing profiles of well-known artists my beat includes covering off-the-beaten track stories about lesser known artists: e.g., burlesque, sideshow, and vaudeville performers. I also like to explore unexpected conflicts experienced by performing artists, e.g., Jewish feminist performers in the Muslim world; and the experiences and reflections of senior artists.
  Crain's New York Business, American Theatre magazine, Film Journal International.
  I was a on-staff feature writer for Backstage for 15 years ('97-2012) writing profiles, covering trends and news events. Prior to my tenure at Backstage I was a feature writer at the now defunct Theater Week, I also wrote for the Washington Post's TV Week and a host of women's publications.
Since my tenure at Backstage ended I've been covering the cultural scene--writing film reviews, covering trends and writing features--for Film Journal International, American Theater, Crain's New York Business, and the Forward, among others.

I've won 15-plus awards and honors, including three National Arts and Entertainment Journalism Awards (2016, 2017); three New York Press Club Awards (2013, 2014, 2015), a Los Angeles Press Club Award (2017); three Simon Rockower Awards (2014, 2015, 2017); I was a 2014 and 2017 finalist for Deadline Club Awards; and most recently I was a 2017 finalist for the National Arts and Entertainment Journalist of the Year Award.

My book, "JEWISH ART TODAY, News, Views, and Cultural Trends," a compilation of my stories first printed in the FORWARD, was published by Hadassa Word Press
