This is a video of my two appearances on The Fox News Channel. The first was on May 11, 2007 where I proposed to my girlfriend. I then appeared via phone on September 22, 2007 to update the Fox & Friends gang just prior to my getting married.
While my appearances were not law-related, they give you a good idea of how I operate. No, it’s not that I keep people in the dark about something then spring it on them at the last minute! The appearances demonstrate my creativity, persistence, and passion for things I care about.
People always ask me how I made this happen. I had no friends on the inside, so this all came about through my own efforts. My then-girlfriend, Audra, and I planned a trip to New York to visit one of my best friends and check out the city. I intended to propose to Audra at some point during that trip. Wanting to make it memorable, I thought that it would be cool to propose on live tv.
My original idea was to propose during one of Fox & Friends’s outdoor segments. They typically go outside the studio each morning and talk to some people. I thought that if I would propose to Audra if I could get a few seconds of that time. So, I started emailing the show regularly about a month out from our trip. Thinking they might be more receptive to a member of the military, I sent each email from my military email.
After about two weeks of emailing the show, a producer emailed me back. He said he would love to accommodate me. He came up with the idea of a quiz show where Audra and I would be contestants. The last question would be my proposal to Audra.
The morning we were to appear, I told Audra that we were going to stop by the Fox News Chanel studio to wave behind the glass. Unbeknownst to her, I had told all our friends and family my plan. As we were getting ready that morning, it began to rain. I thought we were going to get canceled. Then, a producer called me and told me that our segment could be moved inside if we still wanted to do it. So, of course I accepted that offer! I told the producer what we were wearing so they could spot us.
Soon after we showed up outside the studio, someone came out and asked if we wanted to come in and play a quiz game. I acted surprised, and Audra was in a state of disbelief. We entered the studio, and the rest is history.
The follow-on appearance was given just prior to our getting married. This was essentially us milking our 15 minutes of fame for all it was worth.
This experience is illustrative of my approach to practicing law. My creative, out-of-the-box, thinking led to one of the most remarkable experiences of my life. I will apply that same creativity when when working to resolve your case. My persistence in contacting the show prevented an incredible opportunity from slipping past me. I will be just as determined to get you the best possible outcome when advocating for you. Finally, my passion for my wife and accomplishing a goal is obvious in that video. My recognition for great outcomes in prior cases and my incredible performance in law school are evidence of my passion for the practice of law. I will approach your case with the same passion and enthusiasm that I have shown in these previous endeavors.
