The latest byline: Interview with a professional matchmaker

My latest published piece is up on Livewire, NYU's wire service. Hopefully, it'll be picked up and run by one of Livewire's subscribers. Here's the intro:

Lisa Clampitt married her husband within two months of meeting him. Six years ago, she spotted the City University of New York professor while getting coffee. She introduced herself, and after chatting for 20 minutes, he asked her to marry him. Two dates later, they sent out Evites for the wedding.

If finding love were that easy for everybody, Clampitt would be out of work.

Clampitt, 44, is a professional matchmaker. She’s president of the high-end New York City matchmaking service VIP Life, and co-founder of a school to train matchmakers, the Matchmaking Institute.

Yup, there's seriously a Matchmaker Institute here! New York has everything.
