I discovered my passion for astrology when, at the precocious age of nine, I read Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs. But it wasn’t until I had worked up the nerve to have my own birth chart calculated and interpreted by a practicing astrologer at 18 that I really began to appreciate what a powerful tool for self-awareness and understanding of life cycles astrology can be. Suddenly, pieces of my life that didn’t seem to fit the description of someone born with Sun in Aries made sense! I saw there were many other planets, patterns and measurements to consider. A birth chart is intricate, personal and unique — and accurate! From then on, there hasn’t been a time in my life when I haven’t been doing birth chart readings for friends and family or devouring the published works of master astrologers.
After graduating from Wellesley College with a BA in philosophy at 20 (yes, really, philosophy), I promptly set off on a hitchhiking tour through Europe, where I’d spent part of my childhood. After returning to the States, I worked at a major film studio in New York, transferring to its Los Angeles office shortly thereafter. I found my niche first as a copywriter — and then as a writer/producer — of advertising for movies and television shows. I earned a small shelf-load of awards, along with a reputation for writing with wit, elegance and intelligence (and modesty).
I began doing astrological consultations professionally in 1992, around the same time I started my advertising career. Although I consider myself bi-coastal, I moved back to New York in 2000, making periodic pilgrimages to the City of Angels. I am a Certified Astrology Professional (CAP), with credentials conferred by the International Society of Astrological Research (ISAR) and a highest honors graduate of Noel Tyl’s rigorous and comprehensive masters program for professional astrologers.
I look forward to speaking with you soon!
