As a successful documentary film maker I have created, developed, written, produced and directed numerous internationally acclaimed documentary and nature programs.
I'm proud to have helped set the standards for independent PBS production and that my programs have educated and entertained millions of viewers. Some have even helped change the course of history.
My documentary films range from the politically charged Oscar nominated Building Bombs to the Emmy winning biography Earl Cunningham: The Dragon of St. George Street as wells as nature and wildlife programs such as the WNET - NATURE special Cats, one of the most watched programs in PBS history, and the award-winning PBS programs, For the Love of Manatees , Future Vision, Citrus Legacy and Archie Carr: In Praise of Wild Florida.
I enjoy collaborating with filmmakers as a creative consultant on independent feature films and documentaries. My experience has helped numerous filmmakers develop their treatments, complete scripts and set realistic budgets and production schedules. I co-wrote and co-produced the feature film Deadly Species and wrote the screenplays Trance, Horrors Eve, Freedom, A Fish Story, and Making Moves.
