"What has helped me in all my endeavors is the clear ability to read and write that UD hammers into your head. It's a gift that you can take to any profession requiring an intelligent use of language, which, let's face it, is all of life. It has been a real joy applying my education to those things which I read on my own. I am now working for the You Heard It Here First podcast, and I am Managing Editor for Stage Door Dish where I write about theater in New York. I write plays and poems for publication. And I'm still doing odd jobs for rent."
