Telling stories, making documentaries and supporting causes I believe in are the tripod of my video career. Before I began my work in media, I studied theater. After college I began a study of people while I was doing conscientious objector alternative service in psychiatric wards and hospitals. Then I learned to embrace another culture while serving in the Peace Corps in Brazil. The lessons and challenges of these experiences led me to seek an artistic outlet to engage my artistic passions, and this is when I sought training in video production at the College of Marin. Eventually, I was able to start a video company to provide production services. As a result I co-produced three environmental documentaries for PBS. Currently my focus is on social issues and animal rights. Also, I have a deep interest in the concept behind Swaddle to Toddle video because making a film is a great way for parents to discover their baby.
