What we’re about is telling stories.
The Heart and Soul Interview and our DocYOUmentaries help individuals and families tell their stories, share their values and preserve their legacies. Our work for television and for universities and hospitals tells stories for a wider audience.
The idea for the Heart and Soul Interview and for DocYOUmentary begins with Andy's father.
Our two boys, Sam and Ben, often ask me about Grandpa George. As much as I try to convey his humor, his intellect and his passions, I feel that I come up short. I wish I had sat him down for a Heart and Soul Interview or even made a Docyoumentary about his remarkable life. How wonderful that would have been for my boys and for me. That opportunity is lost for my family, but it is here for yours.
All great stories begin with a great interview.
Interviewing is in my DNA. Growing up, I used to roam our apartment with a Norelco tape recorder asking questions of anyone who would listen. My first real interview was with Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to run for President. I was 15. By the time I graduated from college, I had interviewed Muhammad Ali, Edward Albee and Jack Nicholson.
As a television reporter and documentary producer, my work has been honored with Emmy, Peabody and DuPont-Columbia awards. My films have appeared on PBS Frontline and NBC Sports. My most recent documentary, about a little-known story of President Kennedy's assassination, was hosted by Bob Costas.
I graduated from Columbia with a BA in Political Science and from Northwestern with an MS in Journalism.
