Who am I? I have been a journalist, writer, and editor on Long Island for over 25 years, working for a variety of magazines and publications including: Newsday, Dan's Paper, The North Shoreian, North Fork Living (my own weekly), LI Pulse, Hamptons Family, Great Restaurants, Boating Times LI, Image, Times Beacon Record, LongIsland.com, and more. I also wrote a local history book Images of America: Long Island's North Fork.

We are truly blessed to live in such a beautiful, diverse, and very special place on this earth. Explore and enjoy!

Been loving the salty LIFE on LONG ISLAND since birth – our family has deep roots on the east end where we have spent our summers boating, beaching, swimming, and the list goes on. I now pretty much call the North Fork my home, where I get to enjoy the coastal lifestyle full-time.

 

I bring a 30-year background in graphic art and production to LI Living, along with a passion for photography, fine arts & crafts, and interior design.

 

Hope you enjoy the journey with us celebrating the amazing life we are blessed with here.
