SULA Blog Post #3- "Always Learning"
One of my core beliefs in life is that you’re always learning no matter what you’re doing. This has proved to be true for me as I stop to reflect on everything that I’ve done. Whether the activity was the most profound of my life or by far the most mundane thing that anyone has ever done, I have always learned from it. And the most important thing to do after you’ve allowed some time to pass, is...

A night at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and...
Friends, I went to a screening of Charlie Chaplin’s Limelight at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences last Wednesday night, and I must say that it was an incredibly experience from start to finish. Two of the films original starts were in attendance as well and participated in a Q & A before the movie began. Keep in mind that 2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the release of...
Friends, I hope that you’re all doing well. I have been extremely busy over the last two weeks, as you can imagine. My internship is incredible and I’m loving very minute of it. I am one of 4 interns but I work by far the most hours and everyone seems to enjoy having me both on set and in the office. The Technical Director in the control booth knows the rest of the interns names but...
Friends, My internship at Disney/ABC officially starts tomorrow.

SULA Blog Post #2
Everything happens for a reason I lived the first 20 or so years of my life not believing that events and actions were connected in any way. I believed that things just happened, and that there was no rhyme or reason for any of them to have occurred. I also realized that I wasn’t a very positive person. Fast forward to now, where I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason....
Blog Post #1 for SULA
Celebrities are people, too Growing up, it was my belief that celebrities were the highest class of people. They were idolized for their talent, they had the nicest things (cars, clothes, houses, you get the picture), and they got to walk the red carpet. Side note: I always loved that no matter what the award ceremony was it was always called the red carpet, further adding to its...

My first week in Tinsel Town!
Friends, It has been a crazy first week here in Los Angeles. I’ve met so many SU alums, which includes quite a large number of SU-LA alums.

I’ve been to CBS to watch a taping of Tim Allen’s show, I’ve screened the new movie ‘Hope Springs’ at Sony Pictures...

Friends, The first of filming for the Fairview music video went SO well! I’m sitting down to edit the footage right now on my favorite two computer set-up. I have until Wednesday to get it done but I’m not worried because we wrap up filmin g tomorrow and P123 is not a rookie when it comes to editing videos in a day or two, usually less. I’m without my usual editing partner,...

I cannot wait to see the final trailer and can’t wait to see the final...
Batman Dream Project
So, the first and foremost thing that anyone should, and probably does, know about me is that I am a die-hard Batman fan. Since an early age he’s been not only my favorite superhero/comic book character but my favorite character across all platforms. And in 2005, with the release of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins, my favorite character was finally able to be a character in a movie...
This is the first of many videos featuring Fairview, a Chicago based up and coming band. This is one of the covers that they sing best, especially when Alicia Zyburt, the guest singer and sister of one of the lead vocalists of the band, accompanies them. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did, and stay tuned for more videos of their live performances featuring their original songs soon to be...

As many of my friends will tell you, I’m not one who enjoys just doing one thing and never have I ever...
