Began playing with film when I was 10 using my Dad’s Bell & Howell 8 mm camera. At the time, no classes on media production were available in public schools. Over time, I incorporated media into teaching evaluation, video and website development projects with my students, documentary production, promotional videos, and spoof videos to lighten up the workplace. I have done promotional & educational videos for Badlands Head Start, Foxfire Inc., University of South Dakota, and currently, The Logan School for Creative Learning. 

Still from first "film" as 10 yr. old: The Wedding with dad's 8mm Bell & Howell camera.
