I've been a comedy fan since age four when Moe Howard asked me, "What's your name, lil' goil?"  Fortuitously somehow by way of Washington, D.C., Poughkeepsie and Jerusalem, I ended up in Chicago, the comedy Mecca of the world where comedians are kind enough to give me their time and where I was lucky enough to meet my friend the great Dobie Maxwell who introduced me to the scene.

I've interviewed comedians and other creative folks as a contributor to the Chicago Tribune's TribLocal (Wilmette) and at the Wilmette Patch.  I've moved to Chicago Now for a more city-wide focus. Comedians Defying Gravity was a finalist for the Chicago Headline Club's Peter Lisagor Award.
