award-winning storyteller / adventurer / family man

welcome

I am passionate about crafting stories with "take away", working hard and creating content that connects people. I have the honor of being credited with over two thousand (2,000) hours of network tv, cable and film, 4 Emmy® nominations, one Primetime win, a Golden Marble Award and several other accolades. People say I have a gift of finding the essence of a good story and delivering it in a simple, engaging way. For over 13 seasons, I was proud that my story contributions connected with millions of television viewers on the most watched daytime talk show, Dr. Phil. 

This website has some samples of my work. Not a lot because of privacy issues with the studios and broadcast networks. I am based in Auburn, California and taking new clients who value quality and compassion. If you would like to open up a discussion, ObscureMyEmail. Serious inquires only.

The old cable bridge looks so rad with Cape Horn in the distance.  Had to stop and take this place in on the way back from today’s adventure.  #OptOutside #film #SierraGold

Went out for a remote hike and had a fall and tweaked my ankle.  Sore and icing now, so be safe out there.  It’s wet and slippery.  I saw this tree glowing with life.  Just love it.

Clouds are gorgeous today.  Love these puffy beautiful creations.  At dentist, I had to grab the tripod and camera and roll a little 4k timelapse with 3 second intervals, hopefully delicious when I see it on studio monitor.  #CanonM50 #Sigma18-35 #Timelapse #SierraGold

Today’s view of the lake.  Found some ancient Maidu artifacts and an old exposed foundation from  what appears to be a bridge crossing the American River.  Lake is low.  Rain should help.

Rattlesnake Bar at Folsom Lake.  What a view.  Water low and quiet.  Exploring the area makes me imagine Richard Barter and the Pirates of Placer.  #History #SierraGold
