Recent Projects

In the fall of 2016, I had the opportunity to contribute on a PBS Show “The Talk: Race In America” which aired on 2/20/17.  This is a two-hour documentary film about African American and Latino families in America that are teaching their children on how to behave and react when stopped by the police. The documentary also informs the viewer of statistics about police brutality in America.  The documentary film is powerful and eye opening.

Just wrapped another successful season with the NFL. The season began for me in Los Angeles, CA working on the HBO Series “Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Los Angeles Rams”, carried through the season mixing player and coach wires and mixing sideline sound behind the bench and continuing on throughout the post season at Wild Card Divisional games up to the AFC Championship Game. The season wrapped in Houston Texas at Super Bowl 51. It’s always a pleasure working with a talented group of people at NFL Films.
