I'm not usually one to be in front of the camera, so when Adam Sawatsky contacted me about doing a piece, I was veeeeerrrryyy nervous.
My hobby of putting googly eyes isn't something I share much publicly -- I mostly do it for me as a way to try to balance out life -- but after Adam told me he found joy when seeing the images I shared, it took some of those nerves away... so share it I will!
We met up this week at my studio for the interview and to play with googly eyes... and we also caught up. Many moons ago I was a tv producer of a live morning show at A-Channel (which became CTV) and Adam was one of our on-air hosts. He nailed it every single time because he is genuinely is interested in other people's lives, he's very easy to talk to, and though I knew his tricks for disarming a nervous guest, they some how worked and I was able to relax... sort of.
Our story aired yesterday on his Sawatsky Sign-Off segment on CTV News locally, and then apparently it showed up on the national version later that evening (gah!)
In any event, I finally watched it today and am thankful to Adam for making some sense from the plethora of words as they tumbled out of my mouth. He managed to tie in my advocacy photography, so a few adoptable friends are in there too!
Here's the link to the piece. You can watch it, read it...or both!
Because Faceboook no longer allows news links, this is the only way I can share it
