My Role

Emcee and columnist for Trib University. The link for TribU is on the front page of Chicagotribune.com. My column is called "Lessons for Life". I also appear weekly on WGN Television and daily on CLTV discussing topics for Trib University.
My Biography

I spent years as a television reporter/anchor and radio host in Chicago. I dropped out of the media to write two books, have a kid, and "find myself". I'm thrilled to be back on the beat with my "Lessons for Life" column.
My Interests

Spirituality, writing, playing with my son, running, yoga(when I remember to do it), and anything that has to do with Italian food.
