Work Experience:
General Background

I have twenty years experience as a parent, twelve years experience as a home-school teacher and tutor, and ten years experience (1999-present) as a successful freelance writer/editor/researcher/journalist/newsletter publisher/report writer/web content writer, publishing materials mostly related to education, child development, parenting and home-making.

I have also done independent, in-depth research and report writing on political topics such as right-wing extremism, terrorism and Islamo-fascism.


I have published dozens of articles in mainstream and online magazines, including Birds and Blooms, Taste of Home, The Herb Companion, and the award-winning child development publication, Wonder Years.

My article, Cooking with Edible Flowers, was published on the Bon Apetit website, and was used in a segment on their Epicurious TV show.

I authored a book, “Make your Kid a Genius: Tools to Enhance your Child’s Learning from the Womb through College” and published an educational newsletter of the same name.

The book chronicled my personal experience of home-schooling my prematurely born son, expected to have developmental and learning lags, and who scored college-level proficiency in math and English by age 11.

The newsletter featured articles, author and expert interviews, and book and product reviews related to both home schooling and alternative learning modalities, such as the Montessori method, Super-learning and the Mozart Effect.

I have also done some writing for newspapers and commercial websites, and projects involving in-depth research and report writing on complex subjects such as terrorism and Islamo-fascism.
