Biography

I am currently an agent in Translation Rights, after serving as Joint Head of the department for five years. Before joining Curtis Brown in 2005, I worked for six years at ICM Partners, first in their New York office and later in London.

I look after translation rights for authors of Curtis Brown London, as well as for authors of Gelfman Schneider and ICM Partners in New York.

I grew up outside Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, and studied political science and French and English literature at Duke University in North Carolina. After graduation I worked briefly as an internal consultant at JP Morgan in New York, and then attended the Radcliffe Publishing Course in order to make a career move to publishing.
