My Personal Story with Robin Williams

Robin Williams in Mork and Mindy

Hooray for #Hollywood

I took the young man that I mentor – Daniel – to a screening of Wreck-It Ralph at The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. We loved the movie, but we also loved playing tourist at the Chinese Theatre, looking at all the stars’ foot and handprints – and enjoying all the tourists there, too.
