“Seven Questions For”


In the course of developing the magazine that I edited and published in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, the Galt Ocean Mile INSIDER, I also created a cover story template, through which I profiled local notables who’d accomplished something extraordinary in their occupations.  I called this feature , “Seven Questions For.”

In each issue of the magazine,  the “Seven Questions For:” feature occupied a four-page center spread.  I was responsible for all aspects of the feature:

  • Conducting the interview
  • Additional research
  • Copy and image research and editing
  • Photography and photo-editing
  • Graphics and page layout

Following are two examples from the “Seven Questions For:” series:

shaw(1) Congressman E. Clay Shaw (1939-2013).  Rep. Shaw was, at the time of my interview with him (2000), one of the three most powerful members of the U.S. House of Representatives.  He was also a conservative Republican who kept getting re-elected in a heavily Democratic district (FL-22 – Ft. Lauderdale and surrounding areas), a feat that was viewed as extremely unusual by national political analysts.

Neubauer2(2) Dr. Richard Neubauer (1922-2007), considered the “father” of the use of hyperbaric medicine technology for pediatric neurological rehabilitation.  Dr. Neubauer earned a worldwide reputation for integrity and scientific rigor.  His clinic was located in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, FL, just north of Ft. Lauderdale.
(Note: As described elsewhere (1, 2, 3, 4), I was a consultant to Dr. Neubauer for several years.  That relationship grew out of, and was totally separate from the no-charge interview I conducted with him for “Seven Questions For:”.)

(3) Carl Marzola: Carl is the founder & president of Atlantic Properties, International, in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Read his bio here. In this interview, I explored Carl’s background, and how his appreciation for, and innovation in technology enabled him to distinguish Atlantic Properties, Intl., from its rivals in the area.
