I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Miss Bria Kelly of NBC’s “The Voice” fame… She is a local to Hampton Roads and stopped by the show to talk about life post-The Voice. She was really sweet and I hope she continues to live out her dream of a career in music.

I’ve been living and working in Virginia for a little more than 2 weeks now, and there’s nothing like acclimating yourself to new settings than by seeing the lay of the land. Well, I got to fly the friendly skies in a World War II era airplane…we’re talking open-air cockpit and prop engine! It was quite the experience as I got to fly high above Virginia Beach/Pungo area….and it was all so I could get a first hand preview of the “Flying Proms” event. Press play below to watch me take flight….we even used a Go Pro to get some of the in-plane footage!

And here’s a few more photos from my aviation adventure…

 



UNFILTERED – A DOCUMENTARY

7 04 2014

UNFILTERED – A DOCUMENTARY premiered in March 2014 at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Sunkissed London presents Unfiltered, a mini-documentary that captures the distinct views of a group of globally-influenced women as they craft a life for themselves in the UK. Watch as the women speak openly about the highlights and challenges of leaving their homeland to create a life anew in London.

Filmed modestly in natural light to allow the genuine authenticity of each woman to shine through, Unfiltered will leave viewers with thought-provoking insight from a global community of women living and learning in London.

Executive Produced by: Kelliann McDonald, Gabriel McKenzie, Rachel Hart; Filmed by: Ejovi Agarin; Directed by: Kelliann McDonald; Edited by: Kelliann McDonald.

Kudos to Kelliann who I’m sure worked tirelessly to get this project filmed and completed, GREAT JOB!



Cruise Atlas

Last fall I embarked on a Caribbean cruise with Princess Cruises…for work! The gig was actually “modeling” for still photos that could possibly be used for the company’s marketing, etc… Well, the Princess Cruises 2014-2015 Atlas for the Caribbean is out and I found some of my images in the mini-brochure from the week long shoot! Check them out below!

OTF Segment: SURF’S UP!

14 09 2012

Yesterday I did a satellite interview with action sports personality Sal Masekela for On The Flipside, to get a preview of the 2012 Nike US Open of Surfing going down in Huntington Beach, CA. This year marks its first ever national broadcast and will air on NBC.

First held in 1959, the US Open of Surfing held in Huntington Beach, CA has become the biggest stage in competitive professional surfing, attracting the most elite male and female athletes in the sport from around the globe to a week long battle for the coveted US Open of Surfing title, and is a pivotal point toward the Association of Surfing Professional World Tour.
