I absolutely hate working out. So, while I was pumped that Alessa Caridi would be visiting the #HipNJ studio, I was also a little nervous. To my surprise, she made it so much fun. Alessa Caridi is the founder and owner of JōbuFit, a company that brings fitness to the workplace in a practical way. She showed me workouts that can be done any time of the day. JōbuFit’s exercises are […]

Michael Schwartz, founder of Hometown Heroes, visited the #HipNJ studio to talk about his Garden State charity. Michael and I go way back to days before #HipNJ. Long Shot Productions filmed his event videos, which you can view two of below! Hometown Heroes provides help to those struggling with domestic violence, drug abuse, homelessness, and more. They are doing spectacular things, and it was a pleasure to speak with Michael and […]

I work in- season as a producer for the New York Giants Radio Network, so it was nice to speak with someone else in the industry. Sports With Friends is the […]

After her (wildly entertaining) Q&A, she signed copies of her debut book, River Rose And The Magical Lullaby. She didn’t do press interviews, but we had the opportunity to meet her. I felt silly standing in line with a bunch of little kids and their mommies, so […]

New Jersey author Allison E. Conway visited me in the #HipNJ studio to discuss her book, Friendshit. After graduating college, Conway decided it was time to start filtering through her friends. (Haven’t we all been there?) “I was discovering who my real friends were, what makes a great friend, and how to be a great friend,” the author said. Then, she decided to write a book about it. Like myself, Conway self-published. The biggest […]

Author Eva Lesko Natiello poses a very spooky question: “What would you do if you Googled yourself and uncovered something shocking?” I visited the NJ author at the Jersey Shore to learn about “The Memory Box,” an Amazon #1 Bestseller. The psychological thriller is about a young woman who Googles herself and discovers details of a past she doesn’t remember. Natiello told me that her Garden State life influenced the book. “Being a suburban mother of two helped bring […]
