the interview

At a friend’s birthday party, right before meeting her, I immediately recognized Bronagh as “that cool girl from The Commitments.” She is hysterically funny and beautifully Irish. We spoke a lot about the subject of epiphanies and my project before Bronagh agreed to an interview; she wanted to first make sure she grasped the breadth of what I was hoping to do by asking people to share their most transformational moment. That’s the kind of person and artist she is.
