Made a lot of field/tape producing impressions for recurring client The Wendy Williams Show:
The VEGAS piece I had a hand in producing – highlighting Wendy’s stand-up comedy debut at The Venetian Las Vegas: http://youtu.be/sYWSgh_7ha8. Was fun to shoot with Wendy recently. She's always SUCH A JOY!
Her birthday show had something I produced in it as well - a birthday tribute from her staff: http://youtu.be/C5VxXjA1L4Q.

I love my National Association of Black Journalists' sister friend Katti Gray - so much I got up too early (amidst a double-deadline week) to teach her new, diverse crop of NYC high schoolers participating in the NYU Urban Journalism Workshop "THE ART OF THE INTERVIEW". GREAT KIDS! GREAT TIMES! http://urbanjournalismworkshop.org/ #nyuujw

Special shout out to my little brother in the industry, international model Bobby Roaché, who has been hosting Anthony Harper and me at his NYC pad this past couple of FOURTH-OF-JULY days along with a fun group of folks – including New-Jersey native/L.A.-resident Corey Notes, an esteemed songwriter (and creative director) – credits including twosongs on Chris Brown’s latest CD.

Another FAB FETE took place later that night at friend Rod’s place – what would end up being a Morehouse/Spelman reunion between college BFFs Michael K. Watts, Mario Ephraim, and OUR-FOREVER-Miss Maroon & White Adrianne C. Smith!
