About

About

Top notch visual storytelling is my hallmark.  My work has been seen on PBS network stations in Minnesota and on STV News in Scotland.

Available to help you tell your story, my expertise as a director, editor, producer and TV host has been honed over a dozen years. My journalism skills and my experiences in multiple cultures give me a unique advantage when it comes to grasping a story and contextualizing it for a specific audience.

In telling a story, I travel to wherever necessary to find outstanding shots and interviews and then edit them into a compelling story that is unique.
