What I’m working on

I’ve had a busy beginning of 2014 and now a bunch of deadlines are coming up next week. ┬áMy days have been full of interviews with interesting people. Thanks to an assignment from Super Lawyers magazine, I’ve been talking to lawyers who volunteer their time and pay their own expenses to travel to Africa to train new lawyers in courtroom skills.

Steve Fury, a Seattle lawyer, is one of the founders of Justice Advocacy Africa. I got to do a Skype interview with him, all the way from Botswana.

Saffron Fields Winery

Saffron Fields Winery

Last Thursday evening I interviewed architect Richard Shugar in Eugene for an article for Vineyard & Winery Management magazine about new trends in architectural design. Richard’s first winery project was for the new Saffron Fields winery in Yamhill. He really hit a home run with that one. His gorgeous, inviting design made the November cover of Oregon Wine Press, the month the tasting room opened.

And I’m really excited about my travel story about Portland for Preservation magazine. This week I’m mixing business with pleasure by having dinner with the owner of Raven and Rose.┬áThis popular restaurant and bar, housed in the 1883 Ladd Carriage House, is an historic preservation success story. Look for my article in Preservation‘s summer edition.
