  • writer
  • film director
  • photographer

    On assignment as a freelance writer and photographer I've covered film, TV, new media, business, entertainment, art, books, design, travel, food, tech and health.

    Publications I've written for include The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Investor Relations Magazine and popularscience.com.

    As contributing editor and photographer for Bangkok’s Asia Times I've covered business and culture.

    I've received commissions to produce and direct films from Post-Newsweek Television and AT&T, and have directed, written and produced independent films.

    I produced and edited karenback.com and former arts & entertainment site zZoz.com and hand-coded the websites with HTML.

    I was hired by the Education Department of New York's Metropolitan Museum where I co-taught a course I created, English as a Second Language Through Art.
