During the month of July, I had the pleasure of producing a documentary film called The Hero Within. The work is a profile of Dr. Kay Sornmayura, a Hepatitis C expert who originally moved to the United States from Thailand in 1989. After years of working at multiple hospitals throughout Miami and ascending through the ranks in the world of nursing, she became a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) working at the Schiff Center for Liver Disease at the time of production.

My friend Andrea suggested I mosey on down to my local dog park and talk to people about their dogs. An unassuming suggestion – but man, what a journey she sent me on. So far, anyway, it’s been nothing but smiles and confessions of true love talking to dog owners about their best friends.
Here’s a very quick wrapup of the conversations I’ve had so far. Not sure what direction this story will take just yet, but given my experience, it’ll certainly be an interesting one!
Driving around a dilapidated warehouse section of Miami a few days ago, I stumbled upon Alejandro Garduño riding his custom built motorized bicycle. As some of you might know, I tried my hand at daily-driving a motorized bicycle, but that was an electric build – a decently sleek one at that, if I do say so myself.
Garduño, however, has gone the way of gasoline in choosing his steed. I had to pull him over and talk to him about his whip, and maybe begin a conversation about and an investigation into the world of motorized bicycles in Miami.
Are they motorcycles? Are they bicycles? Are they safe? Are they legal? And perhaps most importantly – are they fun!
I hope to answer all these questions and more in my upcoming project, heretofore titled Inglorious Motorists.
Hope you enjoy the trailer!
During the month of April, I spent a lot of time with these two girls: Catleya Sornmyura, an event planner at the Biltmore Hotel and an acquaintance of mine from high school, and her best friend Sasha Bruno, a herbal pharmacist and up-and-coming entrepreneur of paleo muffins.
This is their story: a feel-good documentary about the power of friendship and how two completely different personalities have found solace in each other’s company.
