Wonderful, warm, whole, whimsical…this could be about the jazz and about the woman who makes the jazz.

Q & A: Keltie Colleen (a Canadian Rockette)
National Post
November 14 2009

Keltie is a phenomenal woman: strong, inspiring, bright, well-read and sassy! I have a huge crush…think she’d say yes if I asked her out?

Q & A: Erin Karpluk & Joanna Douglas
National Post
October 12 2009

Two lovely ladies! Joanna Douglas was preparing to go on a road trip soon as we finished the interview so I brought her some gummy candies: must have gummies for a road trip. We ended up eating them most of them during the interview. Gummies and self control do not go hand in hand.

Q & A: Martyn Joseph

September 15 2009

If you like Dylan or Cash give Martyn Joseph a shot…I was happy to shine a light on this guy’s work. One of the best voices we got going…the male Patti Smith!

Gerry is funny and really engaging, open and honest. This was fun! He contacted me after seeing the Russell Peters interview. The system works.

Concert Review: Carol Burnett

June 16 2009

Sadly I did not get to meet this awesome lady. Another time? The celebrity who sat next to me…everyone recognized him except for me. Brian Burke…the Leafs GM. ummm, ok: I’m not a hockey dude. Still Brian’s a great guy!

Q & A: Russell Peters
National Post
June 12 2009

Not as fun as I’d hoped it be…sometimes comedians don’t always want to be on. Went so so…he started off good but he was in the van on the way to the airport and whoever he was with was distracting him.

Also at one point he said I have such great questions…which I can’t quite tell from his tone but might be sarcasm. He did sass me and I quickly sassed him back which I don’t think he expected (or appreciated? Dunno…phoners are hard that way).
Concert Review: City and Colour
National Post
May 26 2009

My first ever concert review: s’odd job I mean a movie review makes sense the movie will be around and anybody can go. But a concert is a one shot deal so I’m not sure how this turned out.

Q & A: City and Colour
National Post
May 25 2009

This was a hard interview as Dallas is shy so it’s hard to engage him. It didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped.
