For those that don't know, we lost a wonderfully talented, beautifully intelligent, and amazingly funny man.
Robin Williams has been an inextricable part of my life since day 1. My mother absolutely loved all things Happy Days, which included the sitcom Mork and Mindy.
When I first began my media career, it wasn't because of a love of filmmaking, it was because I had the gift of gab. I spent every morning during my high school senior year calling "Good Morning Wildcats!" Why, because of Robin Williams. Because I watched Good Morning Vietnam.
Robin taught me it was OK to be smart, to want to make people laugh, and he made me fall in love with improvisation. To this day, I still love to improv my way through situations, riffing off what people say and enjoying the concept of entertaining.
