I write funny stuff for kids, which, as a former class clown, I’ve been doing pretty much since I was seven years old.
My debut was a comedy sketch for a neighborhood talent show in which a fisherman hooked a series of unexpected catches on his fishing pole. I did not win said talent show.
Through sheer luck I was recruited right out of (Emerson) college to write for the now-legendary PBS kids game show “Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego?”, where I wrote lyrics for over 30 songs by the now-legendary house band Rockapella. None of us had any idea that any of it would become legendary.
Backed by decades of hilarious experience, I continue to write and develop kids TV, podcasting, and digital content and I also consult for companies who want to get or keep kids attention.
I love to make boring stuff interesting, and I love to work with new media and technology to shape how next generations will laugh, play and learn.
Formerly of Boston, Seattle, New York and Los Angeles, I live in New York City (again) with my husband, who is a jazz recording artist and composer and who joins me in making up ridiculous songs all day around the house.
