I’ve dished with supermodel Christy Turlington about her dry skin and the goddess within.

I’ve joked with world-class violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg about why being a musician is better than working the Lincoln Tunnel tollbooth (most days).

I’ve chatted with inspirational author Marianne Williamson about getting older (get over it!).

And then I’ve related that information to thousands of magazine readers.

Whether the assignment delves into the nitty-gritty details of building a straw-bale house or explores how to banish the blues with yoga, I’m up to the task. Waxing poetic on topics as varied as an opera, a holistic spa or lowering your carbon footprint is my specialty.
