So once a week for the past few months I have been blessed to be the cameraman for #CrisisTV. A Crisis TV, myself and Brittney CeCe Clark, we go out an interview women who are victims of domestic abuse. These women share their stories with the hope of empowering other victims of domestic abuse to speak out and eventually break free from their abusers. It has been an honor and a blessing to be the cameraman to record such as interviews and I hope that you will enjoy them as well.
Where do I began with regards to my trip to China...
We had an amazing time from the environment to the people to the sights, plays, statues, artifacts, Chinese culture, etc.
We visited a Jade factory, where we were able to view all different sizes, shapes and colors of Jade. We also saw a worker shaping pieces of Jade while we were there.
We visited a Silk factory, where we saw the evolution of the silk worm and up to its maturation process at 45 days. We learned of how the silk worm spins into a cocoon.
We visited a Tea farm, where we saw a farmer picking the tea leaves one at a time. They have to pick 8000 tea leaves a day. We also tasted authentic Green Tea picked fresh from the farm.
We visited a Pearl farm, where we saw how the pearls are picked from Oysters. We saw and counted 31 individual pearls inside of just 1 oyster.
We took a Boat Ride along the Jiuzhaigou River, where a scene from Mission Impossible 3 was filmed.
We took another Boat Ride along Hungzou River as well as The Qiantang River.
We also took a night Boat Ride along the Huangpu River. This was so romantic. The city lights up like Las Vegas, but just along so water.
There is so much more to share with the world. I shall have pictures available for metal prints.
Xie Xie China!
So this past Friday night I was pleased to be nominated for a Tempe Instagrammy. I was nominated for the "Go Outside" award. I'd like to take this time to personally thank The City of Tempe and everyone involved for voting for me. I did win the award. And Malaika screamed her pretty little head off. Needless to say, Friday was a good day.
So this past Saturday I went downtown to Comerica Theatre to support some talent that we have here in Phoenix, Arizona at the 4th Annual Arizona Hip-Hop Festival. Needless to say, the event was LIT!!!
Although I am a little bumbed that I did not get to see some of the acts perform that I specifically set out to see, I was delighted to meet some new talent and to also network. Arizona really showed up and showed out and I can say that I was proud that I was there.
So last month I went down to Kartchner Caverns in Southern Arizona on a private photography tour.
Kartchner Caverns is rated the #1 indoor cave in America by USATODAY.
There were a total of 2 photographers with 2 park rangers...so we each had our own tour guide.
This was my 1st visit to this hidden gem in Arizona and I loved every minute of the 3-hour tour.
The story of how the cavern is remarkable and the views are spectacular.
A definite "must-see" experience for all.
Thank you to the park rangers for the tour and education.
That was a good day📷✊
So last week I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot for Trung Canidate...Running Back from the University of Arizona and former NFL Running Back with the Saint Louis Rams and Washington Redskins.
This is a cool dude. We chopped it up about life and family. And that was before the call from ABC15ARIZONA.
That was a good day📷✊
So I took The Queen to The TONIK Tasting Experience this past Sunday at our friend's Renisha & Cory Williams' home in Laveen.
The presentation was immaculate, the vibe was smooth with Neo-Soul music setting the tone. Their system for ensuring all the guests received their unique tastings was impressive. I especially took a liking to the flavor profile of their Barrel Aged and Champagne cocktails and the Strawberries...👌.
We are sure to attend The TONIK family's future tasting experiences.
Thank you for having us.
