Following my Great Escape Audition on July 5, 2011, my friend MT dropped me off on Hollywood & Highland to catch the train. He pulled near an alley and almost immediately someone appeared and started asking questions about what I do. I was somewhat reluctant at first but of course I shared and presented my calling card. What I wasn't expecting was an invite as a guest on his public access talk show. The gentlemen asking me questions is named Tyrone Harris.
8 months later, March 11, 2012 to be exact, Tyrone contacted me and another invite was granted. This time the show went on.

This interview was the first of a couple things for me. This is absolutely the first time I've been interviewed on camera to talk about my quest. I've been on radio several times but this is the first time I've had an on camera interview.
Secondly, I had to memorize my poem, "Late Last Night" and perform in front of people for the first time. I wrote it since November of 2010 and recorded it last year but not until the day before did I memorize it.

Overall, I left feeling very pleased about the opportunity. I hope I feel the same when I get to see it. Tyrone Harris you are the best. Thank you again for the opportunity. This is one of many more on-camera interviews to come.
