In the media

The media can be your best friend and/or your worst enemy. They can make you famous or infamous. They can misquote you, misrepresent you, infuriate you as well as promote you, get recognition for your projects and help you get your message out to the public. What follows is a somewhat narcissistic collection of media related to various projects I’ve been involved with.
