I am on my 10th career.  Past work life includes buyer at Macy’s, ran a company in the rag trade, spearheaded sales of a start-up magazine/e-zine/events company in Silicon Alley, chaired MOUSE (Making Opportunities in Upgrading Schools and Education) a non-profit organization focused on technology in inner-city schools, sat on a variety of profit (start-up) and non-profit boards, sat on my kids’ school board/executive board for years and have been involved with more real estate transactions from beginning to end than I care to mention.

Currently I am involved with a variety of start-ups from advisor to investor.   The companies are Curbed (Eater/Racked), Food52, Red Stamp, Ricks Picks, Hot Bread Kitchen, Gotham Gym, The Moon Group and MOUSE.  I am also an investor in a few restaurants and an early supporter of the Highline project.

I have been blogging for over seven years under the name Gotham Gal.  Love to bake, cook, throw a good party, travel, read, collect art, do the crossword and stay on top of what’s happening all over the world and particularly NYC.

My most successful venture is being married to my best friend Fred and raising my three kids, Jessica, Emily and Josh.
