A little snippet of our piece.... I’m a huge fan of The Skindeep on YouTube. I love interpersonal relationships and find it fascinating watching people interact. Cyrus and I were invited to participate and we took the dive. I will always treasure this shared experience and am so fortunate to have a son who has exceed my wildest imagination of what LOVE really is.

Let me tell you something about this one right here. He’s loyal, loving, hardworking, intelligent, sassy, and the best friend anyone could ever ask to have. He’s been making moves and pushing the conversation along for as long as I can remember and continues to do so today. He is a leader and a trailblazer who speaks the truth even when it is difficult. We have been best friends for more than half of my life and not a single day goes by that I don’t count my blessings to have his friendship. He truly is my brother from another mother and I love him dearly. So today, I want to wish a very special happy birthday to @emilwilbekin Love you E #happybirthday #bff #bestfriend #thatposethough #loveyou

What a wonderful experience Marc Jacobs SS19 was. Always a pleasure to be included. So happy to work with the best team @establishmentny @bitton @richardnguye @morgan.maher @fcmacaulay @pamelatapper meeting so many wonderful models over the last few weeks. Through countless phone calls, emails, appointments, castings, haircuts and colors we made the magic happen. Always nice to see it all come together in such a amazing display of human artistry. #marcjacobs #nyfw #worklife #ilovemyjob

September 11, 2001 NYC. What started off as another day (casting Benjamin Cho’s Show) ended as one of the worst days in history. This was a Polaroid selfie, taken long before smart phones existed. I was on my bike rushing to my BFF’s house @emilwilbekin after witnessing the 2nd plane hit the World Trade Center, victims throwing themselves out the windows & the eventual collapse of both towers. There was smoke in the air & absolute fear in the streets (you can see it in my eyes). Didn’t know exactly what to think, what to do or what was happening around me. All of the phone lines were down & communication was non-existent. I was doing my best to navigate myself through the streets but the smell of smoke, burning metal and death were hard to escape. Please take a moment to reflect on all who lost their lives on this horrible day. #911 #sept11

Another First Day of School. @kingcyru5 enters his last year of middle school (8th grade) and @gradynyc_ is officially a high school freshman. I’ve been taking these photos for 10 years now and am still shocked at how fast time flies. Wishing them both successful school years filled with knowledge, growth and lots of fun. ❤️❤️ #backtoschool #firstdayofschool #8thgrade #9thgrade

Fifteen years ago I went on my first date to the Time Cafe with @timmy2ty He was such a nice guy but I wasn’t particularly looking for anything serious, as I was on a mission to become a Dad. Anyways, he kept my attention so we continued to see one another until I Ieft for Paris. While away, we spent countless hours speaking on the phone. It was there that I realized I was falling in love with the most special man I’d ever met and couldn’t wait to get back to NYC to kiss him. So glad that I went with my heart because I really can’t imagine a better man to call my own. Happy 15th Anniversary Boo. I love you more than chocolate cake, ice cream, gin & tonics and spaghetti. #happyanniversary #15years

This guy just turned 49 today. Happy Birthday to me!! The journey hasn’t always been smooth, but it’s definitely been quite a ride. I’ve been blessed with a great family, fantastic friends and have travelled to places I didn’t even know existed. What a life I’ve had! Happy to be here. #49 #imhavingchocolateandginandtonics #happybirthday #mykneeshurt #startedindetroit

Proud to share latest work. Filmmaker James Ivory photographed by Richard Burbridge for Helmut Lang. Definitely the coolest 90 year old in the game. @establishmentny @helmutlang @richardburbridge @saramoonves @alixbrowne #worklife #jamesivory #fillmaker #screenwriter #helmutlang #callmebyyourname
