I am a multi-tasker in the publishing industry. By day, I am Associate Director of Contracts for a major New York City publishing house. In addition, I am a writer of science fiction short stories and novellas, and children's books. For several years, I also ran my own rights management agency representing small publishers as well as authors like Harlan Ellison. I have taught a course on legal issues in publishing at City College of New York, and do speaking engagements on copyright and publishing contracts for interested organizations and institutions.
