    About Me

    I've spent years chasing cops, public officials, celebrities and the latest trends, reporting for such publications as Newsweek, People, the Chicago Tribune and the Daily Herald, based in suburban Chicago. I live close enough to one of the world's greatest cities to have witnessed Michael Jordan play, Oprah smack down a drunken mom and Charlie Trotter whip up a feast, but far enough away to mostly avoid major traffic jams, random gunfire and drive-by meth sales on my jaunts to Target, Starbucks and Ann Taylor Loft. As a suburbanite, yes, I have a minivan. Yes, I wear sweater sets. Yes, I know my way around a shopping mall. I still love you skyscraper-gazing, boutique-shopping, public transportation-taking city dwellers, but if you'll excuse me now, I have to go check on my nice green lawn.
