I had the honor and privilege of covering the Summer Games of the Special Olympics Southern California on Saturday, June 13th, 2015 as a photographer alongside ( correspondent Robin Flutterby Borakove ( and our valuable assistant Christina LaScala (

This was the first time I ever attended a Special Olympics event and how blessed am I for my first time to be as a media photographer with The day was long and the pace relentless but it was an experience I will never forget and will cherish all my days. In addition, this day was invaluable to me as it definitely prepared me and opened my eyes to what I am to expect when I cover the Special Olympic World Games LA 2015 this July ( as a Special Olympics World Games approved media photographer with alongside Robin.

In reflecting back on that day, I find myself sharing the same thoughts as Robin recently wrote in a article of the event ( "One cannot help but leave with a renewed sense of human compassion. With more love and kindness being shared, it was truly The Most Extraordinary Experience I’ve Ever Witnessed!"
