Show Producer: Managed team, worked with network executives to shape show, wrote scripts and voice-overs, directed talent and edited show for air.
I began as a production assistant logging tapes and footage, but began shooting and producing stories nearly right away (Burnside Skate Park, Mt. Baker Hardcore ) then moved from Associate Producer (where I won a Cable Ace Award and our show won an EMMY for Season two) to Producer. From 1993 to 1998 I wrote voice overs, researched, pitched, shot, directed, edited stories on the world’s best alternative (extreme) sports figures.
