Creating 2020 Content during COVID-19


2020 has not been the year any of us expected. I did write for Ms. Magazine, Jewish Journal, TODAY and for the first time for Thrive Global where I have 13 articles about books and movies. I never gave up. I kept making videos and being on podcasts and I was even a ski expert for a TV documentary! I did travel in Jan, Feb and March and have been home in Los Angeles since March 9, 2020. I am hopeful that with the vaccine, 2021 will be very different.

Please see below for my 2020 articles, interviews, podcasts and videos. To see all of my articles on We Said Go Travel from 2020, click here.
