My roots are in creative and strategic problem solving, but I believe my greatest strength is in enabling others to do their best. My main professional work has been branding media and entertainment companies including about 200 TV networks around the world. I have been deeply involved in making all kinds of media. Highlights include development of interactive media platforms, documentary films, main titles for TV shows and motion pictures, and creating new forms of interactive educational media. More recently, I returned to my hometown and my alma mater to take a position as chair of the Electronic Media Communication department at Middle Tennessee State University. It is a challenging and exciting responsibility to help 750 young people at a time prepare for careers in the media.
