Work Experience
2004 – Present Author and Founder of Parvati Press
I have written twelve books and founded an independent press for the publication of quality fiction and non-fiction books; Parvati Press has been recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt organization. I have built websites for authors, literary journals, and law firms, created and carried out internet and radio campaigns for book marketing and promotion, edited other authors, and converted print books into eBooks and audiobooks. I blog for the
Huffington Post and I podcast regularly via my iTunes podcast channel. I offer consultations for independent publishing. I have started a BlogTalkRadio show called “Independent Artists & Thinkers”; this show illumines the unusual journey.

1993 - 2003 Healer in private practice
I worked with people in physical crisis, such as those suffering from cancer, infertility and AIDS; in emotional crisis, such as those in mourning or depression; and in spiritual crisis. I wrote articles on healing and lectured to various groups, including medical students at Brown University, about the nature of healing and how complementary therapies can support traditional allopathic treatment.

1986 - 1988
Teaching Assistant, Columbia University
I taught Logic and Rhetoric, the required freshman composition course, for two years.

1985 - 1988
Computer Programmer, Rosner & Co. CPA's, 276 Fifth Ave., NY NY
I bought and installed computer programs, trained CPA's and support staff, built a billing database, and implemented general ledger and billing procedures.
