I'm a self-described “professional yenta” who's spent the past decade producing food & travel documentary television. I've produced everyday stories about marginalized group in the nonfiction category for shows on PBS, VICE, Vox, AMC, NatGeo, Food Network, CNN and more. Now I'm turning inward to tell a more personal story... Born and raised in New York’s Modern Orthodox community with a gay dad and progressive single mother, I struggled to find a place in the conservative Jewish world around me. Instead of yeshivah or in shul, I found connectivity through the city’s Jewish touchstones — warm pastrami, smoky sturgeons, puckery pickles. But also, comedy shows, babushkas in Brighton Beach, holidays and family gatherings (with yes, loads of food). With Shtick, I hope to continue sharing and celebrating the story of Jewish New York — for insiders and outcasts alike.
