    This was an important shoot for our Network and I've received nothing but very positive Feedback about Devin. We couldn't be more pleased. I would suggest him to any professional needing a trustworthy, talented and competent shooter

    This is the second time we've hired Devin. He conducted a live to record interview transmitted back through TVU. I would recommend Devin to anyone needing professional news content.

When she uploaded her DNA information to MyHeritage, just after Mother’s Day, she discovered a 14% match — a likely first cousin, or great-nephew. Tracy contacted the match and asked about males in the family that might meet her father’s profile.That led her to her biological father, Bill Esman.
