I was delighted to be back this year with brand new episodes of the Secret Worlds of Boston Comic Con. It was great to once again collaborate with CBS Boston, Chevy, and all of the artists, fans, & experts who took the time to speak with us about new trends in 2017, how comics deal with real world issues, and of course…Star Trek Discovery. The four new episodes were all released just in time for Boston Comic Con (which ran 8/11 – 8/13).
Here’s the episode we did that explored Star Trek’s enduring role in Pop Culture. I’m biased of course but I think it looks great!

…I won an Emmy!
I’m very happy to say that….I Won an Emmy!!! Yes indeed, I was recognized for my work hosting last year’s WBZ/CBS Boston web series The Secret Worlds of Boston Comic Con.
I’m honored & thrilled and I could not have done it without my amazing crew over at WBZ. The awards gala was a fun/weird experience which I’ve been talking about on stage recently, there just might be a story in there yet.
Full Disclosure: This was a *regional* Emmy…and I won in a 3-way tie…but hey, Emmy right???

So I’ve been working with The Big Quiz Thing for a few years now as a quizmaster & host for public and private events all over New England. If you love outstanding live trivia but haven’t heard of us well, GET READY because we’re coming to one of the most iconic venues in Boston: The Hayden Planetarium at the Museum Of Science!
Our first show there this June was a huge success and I’ll be returning for 2 more dates as part of the Museum’s Summer Thursdays programming block. We’re rocking trivia under the stars (…kind of) on the second Thursdays of July & August ( 7/13 + 8/10).
Like every other school kid who grew up in the area I took a field trip or two to the planetarium back in the day so it’s pretty awesome to be back on behalf of the show I’ve loved working with for so long. Be sure to check us out!

So…I’ve been nominated for an Emmy* for Best Host/Moderator for my work on The Secret Worlds of Boston Comic Con. It’s delightful and surreal. Shout out to CBS Boston for giving me the chance and to the amazing crew and producers (Jonathan, Sean, & Brooke…who are also nominated for their work). I need tuxedo pants now.
*This is a New England –regional– Emmy but I’ll most definitely be counting it as 25% toward my EGOT status if I end up winning. It’s stiff competition so we’ll see…
