About Me

Since graduating from college I have worked in a number of creative fields including museums, galleries, and directly with artists. Currently, I am pursuing a writing career, while serving as advisor to Domingo Zapata Studios. I contribute regularly to Art Republik magazine and will soon have my own arts blog in the Huffington Post!

I have been babysitting / nannying since I was in high school. I grew up in NYC so I generally worked for friends and neighbors and feel comfortable with children in the city! The artist I work with has two young children who I have cared for over the last three years. They are two very lively, creative little boys! I love to do all kinds of projects with them and take them to museums and the park. I have such incredible memories from growing up in the city and I love to relive them with kids!

Toddlers, Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children, Multiples
