#6 SXSWi moment: Julia Allison talks to Stan (2009)
As I headed to SXSWi 2009, one of my Nationwide colleagues asked me to snap a few photos of Julia Allison if I ran into her. Turns out he was a big fan, so I promised to do what I could.

One morning as I was heading into the Convention Center, I passed Julia outside of the Hilton, but couldn't get my camera out in time.

Fortunately, a couple of days later, I would run into her again. This time, it was in the confines of the blogger lounge.

I whipped out my Flip camera and made my pitch. Much to my surprise, she agreed to shoot a quick video for my colleague (and was an absolute pro doing it in one take with about 30 seconds to prep).

Stan was pretty surprised by the video. Thanks again to Julia for being such a good sport.
