Gettin' some love from Beaker at the 13th Annual Webby Awards

So the past ten days have been crazy but fabulous. I was in NYC as the official video blogger for Internet Week NY uploading video blogs daily, giving you access to a ton of events that were going on throughout the city.

You can see all the videos at http://video.internetweekny.com

Definitely two of my favorites included interviewing Tom Green, celeb chef Paula Deen, youtuber Kevin Nalty and Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer in the green room during Digitas' Digital Content NewFront.

I also made a quick stop in Banff, Calgary (that's in Canada FYI) to host the NextMEDIA 1st Annual Interactive Awards on behalf of the Banff World Television Festival.

I was there for less than 24 hours, but it was great to be in my native country and meet some amazing influencers in the digital and TV space including Gary Carter, COO Fremantle Media. Oh yeah, and being put up in a castle (Banff Springs) surrounded by snow capped mountains wasn't bad either! (Thanks to Kris Krug for the pics)

Enjoying Banff!

The week culminated with the 13th Annual Webby Awards where I was the official red carpet host. I got to chat it up with Jimmy Fallon, Trent Reznor, Sarah Silverman, Seth Myers and other huge talents in the online world. Besides posing with the oh so adorable Beaker from The Muppets, a definite highlight was interviewing Sir Tim Berners-Lee, otherwise known as the inventor of the world wide web.

Last but not least, a huge thanks to Dylan George for dressing me in the hottest jeans.

Also, ILUS for their beautiful dresses I wore from one event to the next.
