Swan Dive

Ron Rothberg and Stu Sheldon

Swan Dive features the inspiring stories of people with the clarity and backbone to make massive life pivots, professionally and personally. We capture the oral history behind the transformational moments in these meaningful lives. Career media executive, Ron Rothberg, and his life-long friend and award-winning artist, Stu Sheldon, launched Swan Dive to explore and share these incredible stories. Ron gave notice recently at his illustrious 16-yr media gig. While Stu leapt from Wall Street to the arts three decades ago. They examine their pivots through the lenses of real time and hindsight. One month after Swan Dive's launch, the entire world pivoted massively via Covid-19. Now, each week, a dynamic new guest opens up about the unique Swan Dive experience of their life, the ups, downs and ultimate sense of accomplishment. Hopefully, you'll find comfort and kinship in your big pivot, whether you've made it yet or not. Share your Swan Dive story with us and we may feature you.
