Born and raised in San Antonio, I moved to Austin for college and never left. I started my career as an intern and then production assistant at KLRU-TV, Austin’s PBS station, doing a little bit of everything and learning how to make good television from the ground up. When I graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in Radio, Television, and Film, I was hired on at KLRU as an editor for local productions, and from there, went on to produce stories for a local public affairs show.
My career as a television producer began in 2006 with APD: An In-Depth Profile, a 30 minute look at the controversies surrounding a series of fatal shootings by Austin Police officers. The video was used as a training tool in the Austin Police Academy and as part of the curriculum of a government course at Austin Community College. From there, I created and produced the interactive documentary series Docubloggers: Life in Central Texas for KLRU. The series garnered interest from PBS stations around the country, and I received a Lone Star Emmy Award and several nominations for my work.
Over the years, my work as a producer, videographer, and editor has allowed me to share my knowledge and experience on a local and national level as a panelist, guest speaker, and consultant. I shared the Docubloggers concept as a panelist at the 2007 PBS Development Conference, and later teamed up with national PBS to produce coverage of the 2009 SXSW festival. In 2010, I brought Docubloggers to local Austin cable station ME-Television for daily coverage of SXSW that culminated in a 30 minute special.
Since the conclusion of Docubloggers, I have worked full-time as an independent producer with clients like the University of Texas’ $3 billion Campaign for Texas, the Mobile Film School, Lights Camera Help Film Festival, and various other projects, blogs, and organizations.
I live in Austin, Texas with my wife (and high school sweetheart) Virginia, our dog Marley, and our ornery cat Coco.
