It’s not easy explaining what I do — there’s many moving parts to it. First there’s the Video, followed often by Writing and Still Photography. These mediums are all components of multi-media work. If you fail at any one of these, the entire project hangs in the balance. So it’s important to get it right. Multimedia is used throughout the Internet to tell stories, reach consumers or simply to convey a message.
I started out in the media world working as a staff reporter for newspapers. One newspaper was so small it only had two full-time reporters and I was one of them. But I learned a lot about journalism and how boring it is to cover City Council meetings each week.
Then came this rush toward glossy magazines and I leaped at the chance to be a part of that business. In 2001 or so, a tsunami of digital content overtook newsstand print magazines, and everything around me just blew up. I adopted the new technologies and it morphed into widening my skills and moving into cable television production.
Soon after making a decision to leave editing magazines behind, I jumped into a cable television project I had developed. Which eventually led to dabbling into cable television production work and for that I’m forever grateful. These cable TV shows won a few awards and lots of fans and that means the most.
