The WIRB Copernicus Group (WCG) hosted this incredible corporate event at the Air and Space Museum. The highlight of the event was listening to Buzz Aldrin speak about being the first of two humans to land on the moon. He shared many interesting and funny anecdotal stories from his experiences as lunar module pilot on the Apollo 11 mission. Buzz Aldrin talked about taking the first “selfie” of himself with the moon. This was back in 1969 so way before the selfie stick phenomenon swept the nation!
I very much enjoyed photographing this amazing booth for AstraZeneca at the National Cardiologist Convention in Washington DC. AstraZeneca is a global research-based biopharmaceutical business with innovative medicines that are used by millions of patients worldwide. The purpose of their booth at this event was specifically to promote Brilinata, an oral antiplatelet treatment for Acute Coronary Syndrome. Brilinta has been shown to reduce the rate of thrombotic cardiovascular events, such as stroke, heart attack, or even death.
‘Pardon the Interruption’ is one of my favorite sports shows on television. In this fast-paced, half-hour program, Washington D.C. sports writers Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon have heated debates on the headlines in sports and a bit of pop culture to boot. The pair engage in high-energy discussions, conduct interviews and often argue over the day’s hottest topics. Other sports reporters often appear as guests and offer opinions on the top stories of the day.
Main Street, the brainchild of Jillian Copeland, whom I greatly admire, has taken her own family experiences and created an innovative movement for our nation to follow. “Main Street’s mission is to meet the urgent need for disability housing and programming with affordable, community-centered spaces and opportunities that promote inclusion, independence and quality of life.” A sense of belonging is the way she describes her goals and vision for this community project. This venture is very close to my heart because there is a pressing demand for integrated living and community structure that provides critical support to the special needs community, enabling them to shape their success. Main Street is a brilliant solution to fulfill this unmet need, and I look forward to seeing it come to fruition.
I have been involved with the JFGH foundation for the past two decades, and was thrilled to be a part of the 35th annual JFGH Gala at the Strathmore Music Center with chairs Lisa Reiner and Pamela Rosenberg.
The Jewish Foundation for Group Homes is a wonderful nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the independence, dignity, choice, and community inclusion of individuals with disabilities, regardless of faith or creed.
JFGH is committed to providing individuals with developmental disabilities and/or chronic mental disorders with the opportunity to live independently within the community with dignity, personal choice, and respect while offering the opportunity to experience Jewish life and supporting others with the opportunity to practice their own faith.
Photoshoot for Mr. Sunday’s Soups, a cookbook authored by Lorraine Wallace, the wife of Fox News Anchor, Chris Wallace.
Known to millions as the anchor of Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace-"Mr. Sunday"-is one of the most popular news show hosts in the country. After a long day on air, Chris would often arrive home hungry and delight at the sight of a big pot of his wife Lorraine's soup on the burner.
