I recently had the opportunity to revisit my TV background by participating in a video shoot for a client, The Westin New York at Times Square (http://www.westinny.com/).
To celebrate The Westin’s upcoming sixth birthday, The Westin has just launched a contest inviting kids and teens to pen an original birthday tune. The prize—a trip for four to celebrate New Year’s Eve at The Westin, complete with Champagne and dinner at Shula’s Steak House.
Having spent two years as a news reporter, I was thrilled to be on camera again. Though I wouldn’t quit my current day job as a travel publicist, a small part of me will always have the TV bug. How fortunate I am to be able to satisfy that bug every now and then..

A footnote -- The Westin NY video marks my second YouTube appearance. My first was a dance onboard a Royal Caribbean cruise unexpectedly caught on video by my cute partner’s friend (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HF4VfiSYdpo). Good times.
