Brief Bio / Description of Interviewee

“While I was in Olathe, KS, I worked as a peer educator for special needs children. At the time there was an article in my local Gazette looking for freelance writers, so I applied for that. And they said, “oh, we would like you to interview local commerce.” At the time, Project Broadway across America had asked them to advertise their theater. So they gave me the assignment. I interviewed them. They gave me the full promotional pictures and I got free tickets for my family. It was an extraordinary experience because you'll find in this life, everyone has a story to tell. You just got to listen. When you are engaged, actively enthralled in wanting to know what this person is doing, how they're sharing, where they got their source, where their inspiration is, it tells, it shows in the writing. And I was very excited to be a part of that. I also interviewed war veterans from World War 2. And it was very important to do that because they're slowly leaving us one by one. And my grandfather served as a Burma Bridge Buster in India. And when I took on the project of interviewing the government, some of his peers were still alive. They gave me pictures. The government gave me my grandfather’s medals and I found out how he came over to India on Mauretania. I love the Titanic, I love the story, the tragedy, the passion. The Mauritania is almost a sister ship of the Titanic.”
