Uncensored Interview with the Keith Andrew Network


Last week I did an interview with Keith Andrew of the Keith Andrew Network. Keith is an amazing host who’s passion is breaking the stereotype of people with learning disabilities. The whole purpose of his network is interviewing people of public interest in the late night talk show host kind of way! 

I spent about 45 minutes talking to him about his show, goals, stigmas about disabilities and of course, my career and what I’m currently working on now. Don’t just check out my interview, check out some of Andrew’s other interviews on his Youtube Channel!

My News Blog is Joining the Derek Sivers movement, NowNowNow.org

While Shooting for DiamondVeneer.com at Brazen Studios L.A

Hi Guys!

I haven’t posted new updates or news releases here in a while because I’ve been so immersed in my current projects that I or my team haven’t had a chance to update this page. A few days ago I was really inspired by Derek Sivers movement https://sivers.org/now. So I decided to shift my news blog to this format and join the NowNowNow.org movement!

The way it works is you simply create a page on your website that you update with projects you are currently working on. You are free to update it or change it whenever and however often you need to. I’m sure everybody is going to use this in their own creative individual way but I find it  refreshing  to switch away from a  "Latest News” page for a website that represents my personal brand. I feel like by changing to the “Now” format, everything that I post on this page becomes more of my own voice rather than a carefully crafted press release.



Considering how quickly and regularly my projects can shift depending on their needs, I plan to update this page quite regularly and share some of the fun!

Chinatown Firecracker 10k Run

Firecracker Run Finisher's Medal
As many times as I have done this route just for fun, I was definitely ready to start and ready to finish on February 23rd! On the heels of returning from New York from the frigid weather that is still plaguing the east coast, it was hard getting into the rhythm and pacing of the race. For anyone that is not familiar with this route, let me tell you - it is a doozy! It starts at the bottom flat end of Chinatown and winds up the side of Elysian Park to the top of Dodger Stadium and then down the side of the park back to the flat side of Chinatown. The uphill part is grueling if you do not like hills and/or heat! I ran the route 3 times the week before the race and I run it about once a week on the regular basis so I knew it well.


As a Chinatown local, it is always an exciting feeling when the streets begin to crowd with people for an event. The day before was the bike race and so the energy had only increased over night. The race is very well organized. The community here is pretty experienced with organizing public events and the community is very involved. If you are looking to gain experience running races or organizing one, this is a good place to watch, volunteer and learn. 


I picked up my swag bag the day before. It was a funny surprise to see a bag of Mahatma Brown Rice that by the way, is Kosher approved! I did munch on the Breakfast on the Go Oatmeal Nut Blend although it wasn’t as favorable as some other granola mixes. By the time I got to the Corn Thins and my Vegetable Lo Mein, I was carved up and ready to roll as long as I didn’t exert too much energy by the next morning. I am still holding onto the Tiger Balm and Seasorb for a time when I will need it. Perhaps that will be after my next full marathon, who knows!



Goodie Bag
Firecracker Run 10k T-Shirt
 The only thing I had a gripe about was that they were only providing bag checks for people that took the Metro. Although, I live ridiculously close to the start line (like a block away), I still wanted to convenience of checking my bag so that after the race I didn’t have to hightail it home before enjoying the festivities, etc.


I really love this years race t-shirt graphic and the calendar. It has got an edginess to it that makes you feel like a badass. The medal isn’t as nice as the one from the New Year Race but I am equally proud to have it! By the way, I wore my first Fabletics Outfit and so many female runners loved it, check it out!

Walking With Needles and Body Bags In New York Couture Fashion Week

Last week I walked in the Laurie Elyse "Bandages" Collection at New York Couture Fashion Week. I closed the show which is a huge deal in the fashion world and it was such as honor to do this, especially for a collection like this. The "Bandages" collection took a traditionally disturbing subject about death and translated it into living art. Both Laurie and I have faced the insurmountable reality of death at a young age. Her strength in living with Multiple Sclerosis and using her personal experience to cultivate such an artistic yet meaningful message is amazing. I felt so privileged to be able to walk her runway carrying the type of syringes that impaled my arms for months when I had meningitis. I always like to support people who have supported me. For information about Laurie Elyse and her collections, visit LaurieElyse.com

Sometimes Successes Aren't News Worthy but They Are Still Successes

Finishing the Firecracker 10K
Yesterday I set out to run my 2nd race this year. This is also my 2nd race since I had meningitis in 2006. Although I haven't had the twitching feeling in my legs for quite some time, I still get anxiety every time that my legs are going to start tingling and will give out but that didn't happen! I made it through step by step. 

My time was decent (53:23) but I still have plenty of room for improvement.   I am excited that I have some training to look forward to in the coming months. 

I think the the most impactful message I can send to anyone living with a chronic illness whether it be short or long term is that you don't have to let that define you or your progress in life. 7 years ago I could only run a mile at a time. At 26 that is a devastating reality but I knew that I could get better. I lived with a mother who had chronic arthritis all my life and I watched her on most days crawl instead of walk but she never gave up and one day she got to the point where she could walk 4 miles a day. So I knew I could completely regain my ability to run. In my present, I am very healthy but I have so much gratitude for the the days when I didn't have the stamina to stand because that is where I learned perseverance. 7 Years later I can celebrate that perseverance by crossing a finish line.
