Emmy and UPI award-winning journalist, television producer and writer. Emmy winning, on-camera, major market TV news reporter. Book author. Print journalist. Conducted 10,000+ interviews and scripted 3,000+ TV news segments / programs. A nationally-recognized producer/writer of television documentaries. For three consecutive years (2007-09) my documentaries have been honored by SPJ as Florida's "Best Public Affairs Television Program." Recently: Producer/writer of 2 highly-acclaimed environmental documentaries, "The Green Monster, It Came From The River," and its sequel, "Revenge of the River." Both programs – describing the deteriorating health of the St. Johns River, Northeast Florida’s “crown jewel” – aired in prime-time, commercial-free, on WTLV, Jacksonville’s NBC affiliate, and later on WJCT, the local PBS affiliate. Each documentary had 100,000+ viewers. "Green Monster" also took 1st place at the “Awards for Reporting on the Environment,” the “world’s largest and most comprehensive” honors for eco-reporting, sponsored by the Society of Environmental Journalists. Most telling was our competition: The CBS Evening News. The CBS entry came in second to "Green Monster." Also a published author: Books, magazines, newspapers. Demo reels, DVDs of the documentaries, writing samples and outstanding references are available on request.
