Yep, I’ve done a couple things. Been working in TV a long time, the last 19 years at the network level. I’ve covered aviation, crime, entertainment, natural disasters, medical stories, and all manner of breaking news. For the last year and a half I’ve had the great honor of working for CBS News, where I’ve produced episodes for two series: Whistleblower and NCIS: The Cases They’ll Never Forget. You can find much of my work on my YouTube Channel where I have 31K subscribers!
I’ve turned stories around in a couple of days when deadlines required it, and I’ve also been given the luxury of months to produce long form hours that are more polished. Some of my stories are two minutes long. Most are about 43 minutes. (That’s how long one-hour shows really are after you remove the commercial time.) One thing all my projects have in common: I always get the job done—on time, on budget, on point. It’s been said I have a quirky voice and I write in a very conversational tone. All I can say to that is Why would I write any differently than the way real people speak?
I’m proud of all my work but being the aviation nerd that I am, I will always have a special place in my heart for the series Why Planes Crash. I conceived it, named it and produced it. Sounds like I had a baby. Creating a television show or series from scratch and getting it on the air is like having a baby. Just ask anyone who’s ever produced a TV show. Or had a baby.
Feel free to reach out if you have a position that synchs with my skill set. I can do just about anything where storytelling is involved, I’m good with humans, and I make a mean Gimlet. I also happen to have very strong references inside the hallowed halls of Edward R. Murrow and beyond who will vouch for me. Here are the highlights:
