In late 2011 as the steel of One World Trade Center began to emerge from the New York City skyline, I trained my camera's on it's historic rise. By the Spring of 2013 I was contacted by producer Paul McGuire of Pipeline 39 Entertainment to take part in the documentary film of the topping off on One WTC's Spire. By May of 2013 the time had come for World Trade Center to reclaim it's symbolic place in the New York City skyline. It was a proud and emotional day to be an American. I felt incredibly proud to both document and witness this historic moment in our nation's story.
