Barbara Bear Television Network

I went to school with Barbara Bear, she was EVERYTHING she had red hair, freckles, dark eyeliner and a boyfriend named Darrin, she was before her time and deserves to be honored. Also, her name was Barbara Bear, I cant think of a more fun name to say over and over again.

When Jesse Malmed invited me to be apart of his art exhibition Outside Jokes I knew this would be a great time to honor my old high school schoolmate.

I'm excited to present the Barbara Bear Television Network a series of my own film projects I programmed for AcreTV in conjunction with Jesse Malmed's Outside Jokes exhibition with Demo Project.

Program Includes:
Much Needed Advice with Cliff Zimowski
Nathan's Black Kid Table
Wendy's So This One Guy

The program plays in a loop for 15 minutes live on now through December 31.

You can watch it right now, right here

APA Chicago Instagram Takeover

APA Chicago has invited me to take over their Instagram feed and of course, I said yes! I love Instagram! 

So next time you're on IG, please stop by and give me a shout!


I'm all for trying out ideas and see where it goes, I have ideas for days, some of them are great and some of them... my friends are like Nah Steph that's not good LOL

So imagine my happiness when my girl Dee and I found ourselves once again talking about the soulful queen Anita Baker and it ended up with us joining forces and collaborating on a mixtape and pin together.

What is crazy timing is that at the same time our pin was getting complete Andre 3000 came out with an article sharing his love for Anita Baker! That was wild, read about it here, and also Andre 3000 is pretty amazing soo is just a good read.

So our project is ready and you can check it out here:

or if you are interested you can buy the pin here

and/or just go straight to Trendee's mix here

Have you ever taken an idea and ran with it?
