I write funny stuff for kids, which, as a former class clown, I’ve been doing pretty much since I was seven years old.

Straight out of (Emerson) college I was hired as a staff writer on the now-legendary PBS kids game show “Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego?”, where, among other things, I wrote lyrics for over 30 songs sung by the now-legendary band Rockapella.

None of us had any idea that any of it would become legendary.

Decades (and a few career detours) later, my commitment to kids entertainment has only deepened. I am more dedicated than ever to creating high quality stuff that makes kids laugh but also makes them feel good about themselves.

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 who joins me in making up ridiculous songs around the house all day.
