Growing up in a small Mississippi town fueled my imagination and creativity. I pretended to be a cameraman and sound engineer while playing with my dad's 8mm film camera and tape recorders...even though I had no idea that's what those jobs were called. I never dreamt that one day those boyhood fantasies would become my vocation.
I’ve produced live music concerts for TV and DVD; directed, produced, shot and edited dozens of corporate videos; written and produced hundreds of radio and TV commercials; shot and edited news stories, run camera on all kinds of projects; and created graphics for TV and the web. I've even worked as a radio air talent. Each opportunity led me to something even more exciting and challenging.
As a full time teacher at University of Alabama, Southern Miss and Southern Illinois University, I 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, and advertising production. I've helped improve and develop successful media production curricula at several different Universities around the country.
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.
