This week I finally published my profile on UTA student Ivan Romero that I have been working on for a few weeks. It feels good to get it out and see people's reactions to the video. It was also challenging to put together a more emotional piece compared to the event coverage that I normally do. Basketball season is also upon us and it will be interesting to see how new players will perform this season. I am also including some shots from One Night in Asia that didn't make it into my crowded post last week. Right now I am at the Southland Conference volleyball tournament and am working on stills and video recaps much like my coverage of the basketball tournament last year. More on that next week so until then, enjoy.
