I was honored to sit on the annual Dr. Joseph Windham Series on Race Relations panel this year on Oct. 20, 2016 at Northern Virginia Community College. Panelists included Professor Lucy Gebre-Egziabher (AL); Nick “Dr. Nick” Johnson of WPFW-FM; SOZE Senior Creative Director Daniel Alejandro Leon-Davis; Geoff Bennett with the Washington Reporter and NY1 Time Warner Cable News; and Film Critic Kevin Sampson. Professor Araceli Bachner (AL) moderated the discussion.
I was honored to accept the 2016 IndieCapitol Award for "Best New Innovative Media" for Picture Lock. I started the website as a blog in 2012, and since then it has grown into a TV show, radio show, podcast, and respected outlet in the DC, Maryland and Virginia film community. I hope this is just the beginning! I love what I do!

Alright, so I was right on half of my predictions, but it was certainly a good time visiting the set of "Let's Talk Live" to talk about the 2016 Oscars.
