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.

Girls think I nailed it... French toast and sausage.  Now the trick is the pan.  I picked this awesome frying pan at Salvation Army a couple years ago and just now broke it in.  It’s cast iron and heavy so heat evens out over these little gas burners.  It’s the little things in life.  #WellFed #Camping #Bragg2019

Pearl (aka Shannon) at her first Comic Con and she was a celebrity.  Countless people came up and took pictures with her.  Kaylee dressed as Steven.  Pearl with Rose Quartz with diamond authority.  Grandma made the dress and Shannon did the rest.  #SacComicCon #StevenUniverse #CosPlay #StPattysDay2019
