I’m convinced that growing up in a small Mississippi town is why I developed such a vivid imagination. Daydreaming about things I read about in books and magazines fueled my creativity. As a kid, I had so much fun pretending to be a sound engineer and a camera operator even though I didn’t know that’s what it was called. I'm still amazed that I could turn my childhood fascination into a career.


I’ve produced and edited live music concerts for TV and DVD; produced, directed, shot, edited several corporate videos and documentaries; written, produced and directed hundreds of radio and TV commercials; shot and edited news stories; operated camera on a variety of projects; created graphics for the TV and the web; and worked a a radio air talent. Each opportunity led me to something even more exciting and challenging.


After 15 years in the industry, I made the transition into academia. I have taught a variety of classes including producing for television, video and audio post production, multi-camera field and studio production, single camera production, writing for the media, advertising production, audio for video production, and history of the media. My teaching experience has enabled me to help improve and develop successful media production curricula at several different Universities.


Fast-forward to today and you will find someone who still has an incredible passion for production and technology. I continue to develop and produce professional projects in a variety of genres. My dad's 8mm film camera sits on a shelf in my office as a reminder of where my journey began.
