My two favorite professional tribes are Rebels at Work, which I co-founded with Carmen Medina to encourage and teach people to create positive change in the workplace, and Change Agents Worldwide, of which I am a charter member.


Origin Story:  asking questions, finding good stories

 I started interviewing and writing at 14 years-old, working for a suburban Boston newspaper. Here I am meeting the late Senator Ted Kennedy. The newspaper owners/editors were extraordinary mentors, teaching me to how to land an interview, ask good questions, write well and fast, pursue oft-beat story ideas, and keep going despite the inevitable obstacles.

Stomping grounds

I live in Rhode Island, the smallest and perhaps most creative state in the United States.

 Why I call Rhode Island home: my backyard.
