I believe there are certain people in your life that provide you the mentoring and leadership necessary to succeed. We are all blessed with God given natural talents, but there are only certain people who fully maximize that talent and share it with the world.
From the moment I met him…I just started laughing. Not because he always wears a bowtie, I like bowties and I wear them constantly. Not because of his cool, unique, circular glasses; because I just recently started wearing glasses and I wanted something cool.
It is one thing to say we have passion and the heart to love all of God’s people. It is another to actively live this out in our daily lives. But one woman not only believes this to her core, she lives it everyday of her life. Sister Norma Pimentel is probably one of the most inspiration women I have ever met.

Ministering at the corner of Boulevard Baptist Church and the world is a big statement for a church that has a congregation of roughly 500 people in Anderson, SC.

I just believe…don’t you? It’s that time of the year where kids can be kids and so can us little adults. We just can’t hold it back, admit it…you get a little a little giddy when see jolly ole Kris Kringle. You have the yearning to go crawl up in his lap and share your greatest wish, each and every holiday season.
In 2006, I was working for the WCNC-TV Investigative Unit in Charlotte, NC. I was part of the team sent to the U.S.–Mexico border in Arizona in the hopes to find people migrating to the Carolinas.

In 1998, I found myself in a new job, new city, new state, and really a whole new side of the country. This southern born and bred young adult from South Carolina found himself in Phoenix, Arizona working for, at-the-time, the flagship television station for Meredith Corporation. KPHO-TV5 is where I met Morgan Loew.
Home is powerful word, powerful state of mind, and a sense of security for those across this United States of America fabric. In part one of this series examining the idea of home inside and outside our borders, we find ourselves in McAllen, Texas.
In these next few episodes, we are focusing on professional photography, videography, and content collection gear. This week’s podcast is focusing on the Canon EOS M50 (4K video). We reviewed this camera in Episode 13, right after it was released. Now we have taken more time to get to know this little camera and found many professional use cases in our daily production shoots and personal lives. We do a slight comparison between this camera and two other DSLRs, specifically the Canon EOS 5D mkiii (HD video) and the Canon EOS 5D mkiv (4k video). All three are great video capture tools tools great for any production and content collection teams, but we take a deeper dive into the user experience and where we find one is more useful than the other.
