JT worked with HBO to promote the Chicago premiere event of the network’s new documentary film “Mavis!”, chronicling the life and influence of soul and gospel legend Mavis Staples over the last five decades. A Chicago native, the event served as a homecoming for the music icon. JT coordinated on-site interviews with Staples at the premiere as well as in-studio segments throughout the day with Mavis! director Jessica Edwards. Mavis! debuts on February 29 on HBO.
The Publicity Club of Chicago recognized JT's work at its annual awards celebration. Our work for the North American Climate Summit, the They Deserve More coalition and UCP Seguin earned three Trumpet awards.
