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 five regional Emmys (including, in 2014, for Best Documentary); 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 has been nominated for five regional Emmys (winners announced in late June), 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.
