HERE’S A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME:
I’m a journalist, host, professor, media consultant, blogger, visual storyteller, multimedia expert and nutrition specialist.
I’m an expert at engaging with audiences and creating content that has reached millions and millions of people around the world.
I’m an Emmy Award-winning journalist and currently the Executive Producer of Next Generation Storytelling at ABC7 and The Walt Disney Company. I have worked for numerous outlets, including Good Morning America, ABC News, CNN and 60 Minutes. I have a bachelor’s degree from New York University and a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University.
I have a number of passion projects outside of my day job, like running this blog! I’m also an Adjunct Professor at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. I am a Certified Nutrition Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine as well. I speak at events and on TV panels about my work, including appearing on CBS News Sunday Morning and C-SPAN. I am also a children’s book author of a series I created with my father about detective dogs.
After 20+ years of working for media organizations as a multi-skilled and multi-platform journalist, I realized I have a lot of knowledge I want to use to help others — from digital tools to lifestyle tips to career goals. That led me to start this blog and company!
I love to write! I also love photography and videography, and I like trying and sharing new things. I’m a media and lifestyle expert who has done it all in the journalism world, from print to broadcast to digital. I love to tell stories, and I shoot and edit video as well as pitch, write, host, report and produce. I spent years covering news before also turning to lifestyle content.
I live in Los Angeles with my husband, son and dog. I have previously lived in Paris and New York City.

I live in India and found your video in YouTube and eventually your blog. However, I’m really interested in career goals that you have mentioned in your blog. Could you please elaborate and help me with it? I need this because I’m planning to move to Canada in few months and settle in Canada. I just need to understand the work culture, things I should be aware of, applying for jobs etc. I have lot of questions in my mind regards to that and was wondering if you could help me with that.
I know I can find this information online, but I’m not sure what to trust as there’s millions of pages of information.
