• I'm left-handed (lefties rule!).
  • I love Moxie.
  • I walk my cat outside on a leash (and did so before it became trendy).
  • The first interview I did (as a professional journalist) with an international celebrity was with comedian George Carlin (heads up: file is 2.64 MB). A fellow reporter told me he'd had a rough time interviewing Carlin, so I was a nervous wreck when I got on the phone with him. I need not have worried. He was charming and delightful.
  • Jazz musician Wynton Marsalis (heads up: file is 2.34 MB) sang ("Twilight" by Robbie Robertson of The Band) to me when I interviewed him.
  • I was a figure model.
