I've enjoyed telling stories and coming up with creative ideas since I was a kid. If I wasn’t playing ball with my dad in the front yard, I was either writing or coming up with an idea that would attract an audience. My first short stories would become excellent “cheap” gifts for my parents at Christmas, and my special events would involve all of my friends and become fundraisers for local charities.
Over the years I have written, produced and directed many documentary and feature films for television and the big screen. I’ve also produced hundreds of commercials and corporate films for a variety of advertising agencies and companies on national and local levels. I’ve been fortunate to have received national attention and many awards for our work. Receiving the Humanitarian Vision Award for “Forgotten on the Bayou” and being a Finalist in the Academy Awards for “The People’s Story” are two of our greatest honors.
Other memorable moments have been selling our original TV show “First Date” to New Line Television, producing our children’s adventure series, “Timmy’s Travels”, with Southwest Airlines, and screening our independent feature film, “Execution”, in theaters across America and at top universities in the United Kingdom.
For the past few years I’ve dedicated a lot of time to working with the homeless and producing thought-provoking and inspirational stories. During that time we created a true production company that featured the creative work of homeless men and women producing projects for television, film, the internet and live performance. It was an amazing experience!
Today, I’m really excited about our new documentary that was filmed in the Black Hills of South Dakota and a series of live music events where the audience participates in writing a song with top songwriters and musicians. I also love producing our Coffee Shop Workshops and the unique "Six Weeks to Final Draft" series which takes participants from an idea to an actual movie screenplay, television script, book and more.
My passion is to continue producing projects that stand out from the crowd and can truly make an impact in the world. I am a born storyteller who loves spinning a good tale and bringing great stories to life!
