After 20 years in newspaper journalism, I switched to filmmaking in 2010 with "John Wooden: The Indiana Story." Since then, working alongside WFYI, Indianapolis' PBS affiliate, my work has won nine regional Emmys (including two for Best Documentary, in 2014 and 2015); first place in the national Associated Press Sports Editors contest; Best Documentary honors from Indiana's Society of Professional Journalists and Indiana's Associated Press Managing Editors (for different films); and the Fourth Estate award from the national American Legion. My most recent film, on Bobby "Slick" Leonard, premiered at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and won four regional Emmys, and "Undefeated: The Roger Brown Story" is currently airing on ESPN Classic and has appeared in film festivals worldwide. If you have a great story, want it told from the heart and are able to help with production funds, I'm interested.
