From a very young age I've been fascinated, and shocked, by how reality changes the world when composed through a lens and microphone.

That fascination has led to a career in production from work as audio engineer to camera operator. Education came not only from American Universities, where I've earned degrees in Electronics Engineering and English Literature/Linguistics, but more practically as a studio and field engineer with American Broadcasting Corporation.

A long adherent to the belief that television is best when live, I've had the opportunity to be assigned to work as camera operator on live programs for Phil Donahue, Oprah Winfrey, the US Olympics, Good Morning America, World News Tonight, Nightline, and countless sports events.

I've also represented ABC as a judge at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

Beyond the world of broadcasting, I've supervised many complete productions from concept to delivery for corporations, municipalities and national/international political interests.

Currently I run werks.tv, a digital video/audio production company in Elgin, Illinois.
