Recent Interviews

I've been lucky enough to be interviewed by some really cool people lately. The thing with an interview is that you often talk to someone for a long time and then it gets whittled down to a relatively short article. You never quite know what to expect. But I was really pleased in both of these cases:

1) The Washington Post q&a by Gabe Oppenheim.

Favorite quote o' mine: "I always wanted to be a writer, but taking the risk as a stripper allowed me to take risks in other parts of my life. . . . [but] I wouldn't put stripping on the curriculum for J-school. That was just part of my journey. That happened to be the thing I needed. The better solution perhaps is just to take chances all along the way."

2) The Atlanta Journal-Constitution article by my former colleague Rich Eldredge.

Favorite quote 'o mine: “People don’t come a la carte. Like anyone, I’ve got good qualities and I’ve got annoying qualities. You’re either going to like me or you don’t. All I can do is be honest and tell my truth.”

I know my syntax is a little jacked up there. Jeez, maybe that's one of my annoying qualities. (And it's not like I have that many, O.K.)
