About me
I am a multilingual writer and editor as well as a translator. My primary position is as Editor of New York Arts ( and The Berkshire Review for the Arts (, non-profit journals serving the arts with criticism, articles, and interviews. I am also working on a libretto for Midi, an opera with music by the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer (primary language French, with sections in Creole and English), Lewis Spratlan and a translation/adaptation of Georg Büchner's play, Woyzeck.

I have studied the Classics from the age of 12, first Latin then Greek, receiving a Classical Diploma from Phillips Exeter Academy. I continued the Classics for a BA from Harvard College, B.Phil. from the University of Oxford, and Ph.D. From Harvard University. I subsequently studied Fine Arts at Harvard earning an MA, specializing in the Italian Renaissance and spent 19 months in Florence and Rome pursuing post-doctoral studies. After this I worked as Assistant to the Curator of Drawings at the Harvard University Art Museums, primarily working on a catalogue of an important American collection at the Albertina in Vienna. Part of my job was supervising and editing translations of our texts into German. My following work, as curator in charge of drawings and the Cleveland Museum of Art and principal of Michael Miller Lucy Vivante Fine Arts involved frequent correspondence in French, German, and Italian, research in those languages, and travel.

I have taught courses in Greek and Latin and the history of the English language, as well as art history. at Harvard, Oberlin, NYU, The New School, Williams College, and Rutgers.

My translation work has included difficult philosophical books from German into English, my own essay on the photographer Leonard Freed from English into Italian, my own French free verse into English, as well as legal documents from Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Porto Rico.
