Life has been nothing if not an adventure and I've taken that to heart daily for the more than 20 years I've been a documentary filmmaker.

I’m originally from the suburbs of Chicago and have spent my life observing the human condition, often fascinated by the extremes. After beginning my work life as an assistant to a scientist performing research at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in the San Blas Archipelago of Panama studying coral reef sex, I moved to London and then Glasgow, working as a medical photographer. I got an interview at the BBC in Glasgow and was hired to create their first internet presence.

My world continued to grow as I moved into making documentary film, my first about US collegiate Greek rush (BBC) and my second about people dating over the age of 50 (ITV). I returned to the US after 7 years, where I've developed and produced programming for A&E, The History Channel, Discovery Networks, PBS, Oxygen, MSNBC, HGTV, DIY Network and a variety of corporate clients.

Obviously, this is the glossed over version of a life lived with intensity, so I’m hoping you’ll read my blog for the nuggets that taught me a thing or two about a thing or two.
