In 2010, a good friend who worked for the National Fatherhood Initiative asked me to work with them to develop a video presentation as part of a national promotional campaign for the organization. As a filmmaker, I was drawn in to the compelling stories and changed lives of the men who had been through their program. So, my crew and I worked in an effort to help people understand what these men had been through, and this is the result.

“On Frozen Ponds” will take you inside the passionate world of Pond Hockey, showcasing the die-hards hacks, former pros and committed crews that thrive in the heart of New England winter.
The 4-Part Series will follow 6 teams, each with a different hockey history, as they battle their way through the three day Pond Hockey Classic in Meredith, NH.
In Episode 1: "Only in New England", we meet the teams as they begin their annual pilgrimage to the "best weekend of the year." Tournament Director Scott Crowder fights warm temps, open water and hundreds of players asking the question, "how's the ice?"
