Three World Cup Apps You Need to Download

I’ve been working on a lot more Digits than the last few months and this one was a really quick turnaround to correlate with World Cup right now. I wrote the script on Monday night, filmed and edited it all in one day on Tuesday and put the finishing touches this morning. 

Hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed kicking around with a soccer ball that I bought just to film this!

A High-Tech Headband to Help Manage Stress

This is the second out of the third segment I recorded out of Toronto. They initially had an option where you can use the Muse headband to control pouring a beer tap but apparently it wasn’t working when I got there.

Anyway it was pretty cool to see my brainwaves move!

Hong Kong Marks Tiananmen 25th Anniversary

Pulled an all-nighter to get this story out. I shot and edited this piece. Learned a lot from covering the Tiananmen vigil for the first time as a journalist, but all in all, it was definitely an experience I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

Forget Silicon Valley, Here Comes Toronto!

Time to give my hometown a global shoutout (without Rob Ford) as I talked to HackerNest’s Shaharris Beh on what we should look out for in the Toronto tech scene. 

This is the first time I decided to shoot while visiting home, rented equipment and shot myself with my personal DSLR. I was freezing cold doing my standup - but I think it turned out alright :)

World's First Tiananmen Square Museum Opens

This story took a total of 8 hours to film, write the script and edit. I’ve yet to work on any stories on June 4th since I’ve moved to Hong Kong so I am quite happy to report on the topic. I’ll be back in the field on Wednesday when my colleague and I covers the 25th anniversary.

Enjoy!

What is Alibaba?

This is a project that I was part of, coordinating with Alibaba’s IPO. Thanks Tom for helping me finish the project when I was away in Toronto. I was working on the first video on “Defining Alibaba.” 

This multimedia project turned out great! And a must see for everyone who does not know what Alibaba is!

Got Game? Smart Basketball Senses Your Shots

I’ve been off-air for a few months, but I’m back with a review on the 94Fifty smart basketball! I had to climb onto my colleague’s back just to get that dunk…. good times! This is probably one of my favourite segments considering the subject.
