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.

Meet my new little buddy, Peter Gunn Egadick or PGnE.  Little guy joins the family to get us through the new norm of no power in California... no, not Mexico or Zimbabwe - California.  No running water since we’re on a well.  Buckets of water from the ditch to flush toilet with.  Beautiful night.  Light breeze.  Stars shinning bright.  #glamping #Honda2200i #ColdFrig #FreezerBurn

This young man is going places.  I had the pleasure of mentoring him for the last few months.  Thank you Tiara for the introduction.  We’ve become good friends.  This kid gives me hope for today’s millennials.  He stopped by the studio today on his way out of town to go to school at UCSB in the film program.  I couldn’t be happier for him.  He’s going to do very well.  He’s been my right hand man lately, camera assisting, being a production assistant... 5:30am call time - no problem.  Dude is on time and more importantly respectful of the craft of storytelling and filmmaking.  He has been integral for the launch of my national PBS series - @sierragold.tv - I’m so happy to see him off and know he’s going to do good things for this world.  Stay tuned... #congratsjake #str8up #inittowinit #production #sierragold
