Truth Won an Art Competition (12/2020)

When her personality started to evince itself (around 10-months), I began to believe that Truth was a better version of me. We have a lot of similarities, save my almost overwhelming set of issues and utter goofiness. She is finding her voice in math, science, […]

Family Portrait (12/2019)

A few months before the stain of the pandemic hit, we had ventured home to Pittsburgh as we had always done during the Holiday season. Every other year or so, the Prentice’s (my wife’s family) corral the family together and schedule a photo session with […]

We had the extreme pleasure of being able to sit and watch a The Joy Reid Show in Washington, DC at the WRC-TV studio thanks to a kind gesture from our friend, Big Chess (Chester Reis). While I appreciate the wit and skill of Joy, […]

Photoshoot: Erica Woods (2015)

Erica was “jumping ship” from the nine-to-five (seven-to-seven) at the World Wildlife Fund and joining me on this crazy boat we call Park Triangle Productions. She needed a headshot and some basic photos so folks would know who the new person in the company was. […]

Meeting Raekwon and Ghostface (8/2015)

It was the 20th anniversary of the The Purple Tape – Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. In my mind, The Purple Tape is greatest set of recordings known to man. I wanted to write that, in all its hyperbole because… well, I could. It honestly rests in […]

August 1987: New Home. New Outlook.

Are this Bugle Boy jeans that you’re wearing? Why yes, they most certainly are (were). Standing in front of my father’s Grand Prix, Gerald and I posed for a picture. We had just left our house on Bessica street and moved a ways up the […]
