Interview with A.J. Croce and Puerto Rican artists band together

This has been one productive month.

I  put together another feature for cnn.com on Puerto Rican artists coming together for recovery efforts on the island in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Check this video out:



In the middle of the month, I interviewed the son of the late music legend, Jim Croce - A.J, who has been a recording artist in his own right for close to a quarter of a century. A.J. was in town and played at Decatur, Georgia's Eddie's Attic - a really nice venue in that city's gorgeous downtown area. I interviewed A.J. for a mini video feature for CNN.com - which I conceived, wrote, directed, produced and edited.

The is the official released version:



I have an extended version of this feature on one of my YouTube channels here:

It was a complete pleasure to produce these features. Let's hope that October will be just as exciting - if not more exciting than September!

...and for something a bit more local. A number of weeks back, Tropical Storm Irma affected our area. The howling winds toppled trees - some landed in houses which is quite terrifying if one asks me. We lost power for 14 hours. Indeed things could have been far worse for Gwinnett County, Georgia and metro Atlanta. In my home city, Peachtree Corners, we got to cleaning up our yards - and the city even came around to pick up the remains of our yard mess! How cool is that? Peachtree Corners gets an extra kudos and shout-out! The council, city manager and mayor all get my seal of approval!

Cami and I took a trip out to the Georgia Guidestones. We talked about visiting this phenomenal site for ages. Finally, we took the trip out to Elbert County, Georgia - northeast of where we reside in Gwinnett County.
