From 1990 to 1994 I was the Director of Distribution Services for Starcom Television. During that period If you watched Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Married With Children, or hundreds of other syndicated shows, I was the guy that got them to your TV set. For the next few decades, I went on to produce broadcast television. I have won a bunch of awards and blah blah blah. Thing is, none of that experience has prepared me for the world of YouTube. In fact, in many ways being a broadcast dinosaur has hurt me producing for YouTube.

There is a first time for everything, and this vlog is Invisible People’s first time doing a collab with another YouTuber. I was thrilled that Jan and her friend Staci spent the day with me handing out Hanes socks to homeless people in Venice Beach.

Being a first time doing a collab, I had no clue what I was doing. In true Invisible people style, I jump in and learn along the way. One of the great things about YouTube is authenticity has replaced production style. Ya, there are LOTS of things I wish I had done better production wise but this experience of connecting two people too homelessness and the conversations we had is perfect, and that is what matters.

I really like how Jan and Staci asked me questions about homelessness, and I was so very impressed how they connect with our homeless neighbors. I went a little long with Mark’s interview, but I believe what he shared people need to hear. Plus, I adore Mark. I sincerely miss the homeless people I now call friends who live at Venice Beach.

I am hoping to do more collabs with more YouTubers as I travel. For over ten years, I have been taking social media influencers out on the streets to hand out socks. This being my first YouTube collab the experience pushed me to try new production techniques, and I had getting to know Jan and Staci.

About Invisible People:

Since its launch in November 2008, Invisible People has leveraged the power of video and the massive reach of social media to share the compelling, gritty, and unfiltered stories of homeless people from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. The vlog (video blog) gets up close and personal with veterans, mothers, children, layoff victims and others who have been forced onto the streets by a variety of circumstances. Each week, they’re on, and high traffic sites such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, proving to a global audience that while they may often be ignored, they are far from invisible.

Invisible People goes beyond the rhetoric, statistics, political debates, and limitations of social services to examine poverty in America via a medium that audiences of all ages can understand, and can’t ignore. The vlog puts into context one of our nation’s most troubling and prevalent issues through personal stories captured by the lens of Mark Horvath – its founder – and brings into focus the pain, hardship and hopelessness that millions face each day. One story at a time, videos posted on shatter the stereotypes of America’s homeless, force shifts in perception and deliver a call to action that is being answered by national brands, nonprofit organizations and everyday citizens now committed to opening their eyes and their hearts to those too often forgotten.

Invisible People is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the way we think about people experiencing homelessness.
