American Inventor This is one of those times when you just say “why not”? I was walking off an elevator late for a meeting and our PR guy grabs me and says Simon Cowel is looking for a judge for his new show. What? Who? Get the hell out of here, I’m late. No, wait, i think you can get this. Ok, so I do the casting. Simon says i want that guy. And the rest is history. I got to work with some great people who became dear friends. It was a great experience and I was able to see how the other side of entertainment worked. We should all be on a reality show.
