For many years now, I have enjoyed three simultaneous careers. I am a senior member of the bar of British Columbia, focusing on entertainment law; I am a member of the State Bar of California, regularly dealing with my colleagues in Hollywood; and I am a music producer and composer with a current co-write on the radio and a cue on a currently airing TV show.

I have a confession to make. The last time I sat down and read an entire book cover to cover was just before I started articling — which is a shame because I thoroughly love books. This is not to say that I don’t read. In fact, a large proportion of my day, like the day of most lawyers, is spent reviewing articles, case law, legislation, and other publications on my computer screen. In other words, it’s not the activity that has changed but the medium used to do it.
International Women’s Day was March 8. The theme for this year is: Make It Happen. Patricia Arquette must have known that when she advocated for gender wage equality during her acceptance speech after winning the Oscar for best supporting actress. Her heartfelt comments struck a chord with the audience (Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez in particular) as well as with viewers.
