Another year…

Ganta, Liberia
Ganta, Liberia

Almost to a close! And I’ve just now found a few minutes to update my work status; it’s been a busy few months since I last posted on our way to Liberia, W. Africa. It was a terrific trip – heartbreaking to see the country still struggling under the weight of Ebola, but also hopeful to witness the resilience and determination of people who simply refuse to give up in their struggle for a better life. I just wrapped production on a new show for MSNBC – a medical documentary series called The Chain – set to air January 2017! Details to come. With just a few work weeks left before the holidays I’m turning my attention to Still We Rise with the goal of getting a rough cut of the film out as soon as humanly possible. I’m also looking to next year and like so many in the media, urgently feeling the call to report serious stories that matter in the wake of the Election. I could say more. Lots more. But instead I’ll leave it to someone much more articulate and eloquent:
