Professional Summary

Growing up a Navy brat in California, I've basically been in love with visual storytelling since I was 9 years old, due to my dad taking me to car races that he loved to photograph. This led me from the typical school newspaper/yearbook photographer to having my own photography business shooting daycares, weddings, and sports. I still maintain my photographic skills, but not for work.

I stepped into the world of tv with a ground floor position helping to build the physical station KJTL in Wichita Falls, Texas and then transitioned to Master Control. From there I worked my way up to Creative Services which interacted with store owners to formulate ideas in developing a commerical for their business. This coupled with my photographic skills led me to becoming the Chief Videographer.

My wife took a job in San Antonio with the FOX station and landed at the PBS station KLRN as a videographer/editor. We were only there for 1 year when she landed a job at WFAA which allowed me to start freelancing in DFW.

I worked with different clients off and on here but my mainstay was for Pat Summerall productions where I was required to travel on my own as a videographer/producer/lighting/audio all over the US and Canada. I freelanced for about 4.5 years until the aftermath of 9/11 finally took its toll on the industry.

This is when I took at job as a video producer for AAFES headquarters in Dallas. I did get to travel internationally to produce but I was not able to edit as I wanted.

So I jumped at the producer/videographer position for LIFE Outreach Int'l since this would allow me more international travel, editing and producing videos as well as continuing to shoot video. This August will be 15 years here doing what I love to do.
