Yesterday, I was shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of Daisha Riley. My boss Seth said it. Best. “Some people are World Class Producers.Some people are World Class Human Beings… Daisha was both. Always try to be both.” That spoke volumes to me about who Daisha is. https://t.co/pcPYjOSSzk
