ABOUT ME
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. I recently finished my fifth documentary, on Hoosier icon Bob "Slick" Leonard. If you have a great story, want it told from the heart and are able to help with production funds, I'm interested. More
