The year 2012 proved to be one the most memorable and busiest years of my life thus far. Suffice to say, work took me all over the country covering different functions and interviewing several notable individuals. As one who prefers to work behind the scenes, I have made sure to not be ‘caught’ on camera while working. However, there have been several times when I was caught on camera. Here are a few of those moments.
