Director from another time.

It was a long time ago that I graduated from UCLA and got my first job as a Production Assistant in the Newsroom.  I worked in Research at the Assignment Desk, then moved up to work in the office of the Assistant News Director — largely because I typed, I suspect. * Many of my…

Strategic development.

I use sending my Christmas and holiday cards as a chance to say a little something to my colleagues and long-lost friends. Joe and I work together at UC Santa Cruz, but he lives up in San Francisco — so I wanted to acknowledge the distance that separates us, and my hope that he’ll spend…

Superwoman.

I have a trainer named WHITNEY who is about 5 foot 9, long black hair, and a megawatt smile. I decided to try working out with her when I visited the West Hollywood Equinox and she said ‘hello’ to me in the locker room.  Nobody had ever talked to me at my other gym —…
