As a journalist, lawyer, and cellist, I write about people who pursue individual adventures and struggle against norms. I've had the luck to see the deep ocean from the Alvin submarine, where bizarre animals thrive and tectonic plates slide apart. No need for humans there. While skiing across East Greenland, I met natives driving dog sleds, hauling polar-bear meat, and talking on cell phones. So many ways to be human. String quartets fascinate me. I love the music and marvel at the hard work quartets do to excel, to stay together, and to share the intimacy of their art. So many challenges. As a lawyer, I look for ways to help musicians build their careers.
