Biography: I’m a writer and musician whose early love of sound led to study at the Juilliard School’s Preparatory Division. I then went on to receive degrees in Music Composition from Ithaca College and Northwestern University. After a few career twists and publications, I became the Director of Mundelein College's Creative Writing Program, then taught Literature and Creative Writing at National-Louis University where I also acted as a consultant to National's graduate program in Written Communication.
