Professional/Personal Overview
  I’m a multi-media journalist with experience in television, radio, newspapers and magazines. I worked in daily journalism for over a decade - producing, reporting, blogging and writing for television and newspapers - so I can turn a project around quickly. However, I enjoy long-form writing also, recently writing magazine profile and feature stories. I’ve interviewed or produced interviews with many people at the top of their fields — from politicians including Hillary Clinton and John Kerry — to athletes such as Venus Williams and John McEnroe — to fashion mavens like model Paulina Porizkova and designer Betsy Johnson. I’m a political junkie, but also interested in parenting, the environment and healthy living, including healthy eating and yoga. I am a certified kids yoga instructor and am also writing a book about kids yoga.
