“If brevity is the soul of wit, then The Webby Awards might be the wittiest show of all time.” as The Wall Street Journal so perfectly described The Webby Awards. From the quirky five word speech made by House of Cards creators Kevin Spacey and Dana Burnett “The Oscars should do this” to the inspiring “Curiosity kills ignorance. Encourage science” speech by Mars Curiosity Rover. The Webby’s had an eccentric crowd of very intelligent and talented innovators who the host described as the “1% of the internet”.
As most of you know, I hosted the The Vagabond Project, which is a web-based video series for active, adventurous cool young adults who have the desire to see the world through the eyes of a local… not in that boring touristy way! The first season was shot in and around Hong Kong & Beijing. It was my job, along with the The Vagabond Project team to spread the word global travel savoirfaire; including art, music, fashion, food, adventure, nightlife, architecture, people, and lifestyles.
I have to say, being a winner among so many other amazingly talented winners such as, Jerry Seinfeld, Frank Ocean WEBBY PERSON OF THE YEAR, and Steve White’s amazing award Webby Lifetime Achievement is a marvelous and surreal feeling. It was an unforgettable evening full of positive energy, especially the fact that our producer Cassandra Chan came all the way from Honk Kong to share this accomplishment with us. Winning the Webby for Best Travel and Adventure, the first season has been a HUGE honor and suprise! I cant wait to shoot more! The future is looking great for The Vagabond Project captivating tourism boards and global brands to encourage travel content for ambitious world travelers.
