Videographer/Editor, Producer & Adjunct Video Instructor. Most of the videos on this site are sports related packages from a career as a videographer/editor working TV news/sports in Seattle, WA. Some are personal home videos, others were produced during a time I was teaching video production at a local technical college. There are a few music videos produced using still pictures from recent vacations. My professional career was spent in Broadcast TV as a (ENG) Photographer/Editor covering mostly sports for KSTW & KIRO-TV. After leaving KIRO in late 03' due to a back injury I began teaching Video Production at Clover Park Technical College where I was also a student (1979-81) CPTC dropped video production as a full time program during the Recession of 2009. As a result I formed Bad Back Media, producing a variety of internet videos from conception through completion. Prior to working for KSTW, I was the Video Coordinator at Cobro Corporation, a defense contractor for the U.S. Army, producing videos as part of a data collection organization at Ft. Lewis, WA. Prior to shooting sports for KSTW, I worked in production and switched master control for them. My TV career started in 1980 at KNDU in Kennewick, WA. as a paid intern/production technician. Later that year I started working for Cable TV Puget Sound, first as a production tech./master control operator then as sports coordinator for their local coverage of college and high school football/basketball games. In 1983 I went into TV News as a photographer/editor for KTVA in Anchorage, AK. I have been fortunate to win a few Emmy Awards during my TV career and was especially proud to be the E.P., Instructor/Advisor for the Emmy nominated "The Barns of Pierce County" a 30 minute Documentary produced by one my documentary classes at Clover Park Technical College, it was the first in CPTC school history and my first as an Executive Producer. Since leaving Broadcast TV I have done some videography consulting and occasionally freelance. For a complete resume or if you need any information please contact me through my Vimeo account. Life in TV was good, life in retirement is better!
