Conversational style with a genuine interest in telling any story.
Hosting and interviewing are where my love of radio began, and remain among my favorite things to do.
I am an outgoing person with a thoughtful, careful mind for script and delivery. Speaking in front of crowds (which I started winning awards as a teenager) is second nature to me, so in front of a microphone, is where I feel at home.
I have been in situations where I have been asked to perform interviews with great minds, on the spot. I have found myself sitting in the living room of an activists and or civil rights pioneers with a microphone and no question list, and yet, conversation flows, time passes, and my tape recorder fills up. I am genuinely interested in people and their stories. I’m a natural “talker” with questions, questions, questions. In 2014, I interviewed gay rights pioneer Anthony Sullivan (read more about his amazing story here or watch the documentary) and even the only out-gay royal in the world: Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil. Maybe you’ve heard of him? He was featured on Oprah. Twice.
I have also interviewed countless artists, music groups, activists, and every day people because there is always a story. No matter how private or boring people swear they are, there’s always a story there. And I get to it because people are comfortable around me. I’ve always had a peculiar thing happen when I talk to people or even when making new friends. People tell me their secrets. It doesn’t always make the tape, but it does make my day when people feel that comfortable with me. It’s my greatest asset as an interviewer, I’d say.
