The Empire State of Mind



Hello NYC!

Blue skies are upon us and Spring is in the air in NYC. Can’t think of a better way to shake off the winter blues and get mega inspired than by strutting through the colorful, animated and boisterous streets of good ole Manhattan. Yes, nothing like the Empire state of mind to get the energy flowing and recharging the creative channels. How do you get inspired?

filmmmaker extraordinaire celebrates Anne Brown on Broadway....

On a pretty amazing day this past February, filmmaker Nicole Franklin took a firm step on Broadway upon entering the Richard Rodgers Theater where the musical Porgy & Bess is playing.

With her ‘Gershwin & Bess‘ DVDs in tow, my good friend celebrated a monumental day in her career, in her life for on that day she brought Anne Brown back to Broadway.

To see a talented friend reaching a milestone, someone who continually inspires all of us to move forward in this crazy world of filmmaking, well, it is truly a powerful experience that needs to be shared.

Nicole has been working on her documentary, Meet Bess, for years, and she recently received a purchase order from the theater to sell her short version of her documentary, Gershwin & Bess, in the lobby.

I invite you all to check out Nicole and help spread the word of her DVDs so she can complete her full-length documentary in honor of the late Anne Brown who inspired the role of Bess—she was in the original production of the opera of Porgy & Bess in 1935. Of course, we all hear that Audra McDonald is breathtaking in her rendition. I’ve been her fan since Private Practice. Yes, hard work and patience do pay off…..

Red, White and Blue to the Taste of Ale – – MADE IN THE USA


Red, White and Blue to the Taste of Ale  - - MADE IN THE USA

Who would’ve thought that walking into a brewery this past week that my call for THE ‘location’ would be answered. Yes! I found the place. The one and only where my script evolves to the future. With names that include ‘Jersey Summer Breakfast Ale’ and IPA Hopnotic, how could I go wrong for inspiration? Golden gem to find a place where American pride rules, and all is made with passion. Was great to see good ole Ben Franklin too.

Thank you, Cricket Hill Brewery!
