Here, I bring you with me as I direct and shoot a news story while walking miles across the beautiful, snow-covered rolling hills of Western New York.
This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.
Shea’s Performing Arts Center is a Buffalo landmark sought out by people from around the world. Broadway touring productions typically choose Shea’s as the venue to launch their shows. Although the pandemic has put this New York treasure on intermission for almost a year, Shea’s is celebrating its 95th anniversary and looking forward to opening its doors again. Teamwork is the epitome of this company. I appreciate that every time I enter the theatre. This time, I am especially thankful for the use of archival material and Kevin Sweeney, Director of Marketing and Communications. I generally shoot and edit my stories solo, and I wanted to do a standup that would have required me to clone myself. Without hesitation, Kevin came to the rescue and filmed me while walking backwards!

When a white police officer in Minneapolis handcuffed an African-American suspect, pushed him face-first onto the pavement, and kneeled on his neck until he died, people worldwide swarmed cities to express their outrage. The peaceful protests descended into violence, vandalism and looting. The next morning, concerned citizens started cleaning up the damage, but day-after-day, the cycle was repeated. I am a TV reporter and anchor in New York. This is a candid look at what I witnessed firsthand.
