Dear Friends of Creative Times,

I hope this note finds you well and enjoying the end of summer!

I am currently looking for part-time work.

If, after taking a look at the info below, you have an idea of a person, opportunity, or organization that you think I should connect with, please send an email to I value your creative input!

I would love a job which allows me to use some combination of these talents:
  • Community engagement/outreach and team-building
  • Writing/researching/promoting the arts and culture scene in NY
  • Connecting people of different generations
  • Facilitating hands-on, interactive learning experiences

Specific settings that appeal to me are ones which center around these themes:
  • Arts- and culture (especially the performing arts!) - think BRIC Arts Media
  • Literature/books (especially children's books!) - think Brooklyn Public Library 
  • Local community work - think Borough Hall / The Office of Eric L. Adams
  • The natural environment (e.g. parks and gardens) - think Brooklyn Bridge Park
Here's a little bit about my background: I'm a seasoned community-builder, educator, and Brooklyn-based arts and culture writer/promoter with a Master's Degree from Bank Street College of Education.

Currently, I run a private literacy tutoring practice in Brooklyn. I help elementary school children become more confident, joyful readers and writers.

Here are some sample work projects:

  • Educated parents, caregivers, tourists, and children about the plants and flowers of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
  • Promote the rich arts landscape of NY as Editor-In-Chief of the 11-year-old blog Creative Times. Interview beloved literary and performing artists, including original cast and crew of Sesame Street and Prince's costume designer.
  • Recruited local artists, business owners, and community leaders to participate in GO, a historic borough-wide open studio weekend organized by the Brooklyn Museum.
  • Conceptualized and Co-produced The Brooklyn Blogfest, an annual event for 300 bloggers, journalists, and community leaders.
  • Through Bloom Again Brooklyn, create floral arrangements with flowers salvaged from local stores; arrangements are delivered to homebound seniors and nursing home residents.

Thank you so much for your support! Please feel free to send an email with questions or ideas.
