Remembering Anthony Bourdain

While I never had the pleasure of meeting Anthony Bourdain, by all accounts he was a great guy who seemingly had it all. I could address depression and suicide, yet I am hardly qualified to do so. Having been through a clinical depression myself, all I can say is it's a beast. 

I thought it would be nice to serve Anthony's memory by reprinting a first hand experience from someone who knew and adored him. My friend Maresa Wickham worked with him in 2006 here is what she had to say about the man:

This one hits a little harder... one of my inspirational idols... I was honored to work with him in 2006 and was so impressed at how nice and how real he was. Such an interesting guy who seemed to have it all. My dream.

"Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s OK. The journey changes you; it should change you... You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind." RIP Anthony Bourdain

Here's a handsome shot of him from our Travel Channel promos video shoot.
