Professional Experience

Once as a kid I saw a Dentyne commercial being filmed at Palisades Amusement Park. When I saw it on TV, I was hooked. Fast forward to now and you’ll still find me pursuing my passion for video production. I am proud to say, “television made me what I am today.” And that is evident in the award-winning work I have done for national advertising agencies, nonprofit organizations, educational publishers and Fortune 500 corporations. Telling the right story the right way is central to my work. I am involved in every aspect of the production process providing my clients with a clear understanding of project objectives, budgets and schedules. Producing and writing in the Atlanta market for over 25 years I have assembled a rolodex of proven players and great problem solvers. So whether the need is for writers or designers, directors or musicians, I can assemble and manage the team. You can see my work at
