My past professional experience has been with influential organizations such as the Nation Institute where I worked as an intern at Nation Books (a leading independent publisher of non-fiction books in America). I was a lead bookseller at Barnes and Noble Booksellers in Union Square, where I was in charge of ordering titles and organizing author readings. Shortly thereafter I worked as an assistant at Macmillan Publishers. I have also been published in the Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans (1996 edition). My master’s thesis entitled, Making Sense of the Ordinary through the Fantastical: Fairy Tales and Biblical Narratives as a Child’s Guide to Life’s Best and Worst Truths, was included in the Boston Theological Institute’s student collection. As a master of arts student, I had the opportunity to study within a wide breadth of topics and gained a reputation for being a fastidious proofreader of academic writings and publications of my colleagues.
