While I work in marketing communications at the University of Iowa, my formal education was in cinema.  I have produced, directed, written, filmed and/or edited well over a hundred long and short form programs for TV, web and DVD.  I've done music videos, artist interviews, and I even produced an album of children's songs.  

Some of the videos I've done are commercial or marketing videos for organizations; some are more artistic projects that I took on because they were interesting; and quite a few are nonfiction documentary-style pieces I've produced professionally the University of Iowa.

A lot of my work can be seen on my personal YouTube channel but here are a some selections- some with a little context, others don't require much explanation.

On the Fly: Writers on Writing (2010-2015) (series, high definition) (trailer)

I've recorded interviews with over sixty-five of the finest writers in America, all of whom stopped in Iowa City for one reason or another over the past five years.  This project has been a wonderful collaboration with the Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature, an awesome organization in a one-of-a-kind community..  Full series can be viewed at youtube.com/cityofliteratureusa

Ensuring the Future

I produced this video pro bono for the Iowa City School District Foundation, which provides classroom enrichment and cultural opportunities for all kids in the school district.
