My Second Service

Doing a little bit of volunteer work for the Women Veterans in Houston.  If you are just getting out, or are a Veteran new to the area, stop by Combined Arms.
To help with an advertising campaign on social media, I produced 2 spots for them.  Ben Hallock, an amazing friend, ran the camera and set.  It turned out great!

The shorter version is my personal favorite.  Thanks to Renelle Roberts for the beautiful voice work!

My Preditor Vlog

Most people you talk to have no idea what a producer-editor in television really does.  Any creative art career is generally glamorized and looked at as "easy" work.  It's long days and deadlines that brings handfuls of gray hair- and I love it!  I started making videos to show family what goes on, to answer questions and generally get better at camera placement and directing my own visual story telling.  Everything is shot on my phone or my GoPro.  No special plugins, no filters, just story and camera.  I hate being on camera, so don't judge!
Take a look and see what you think...

Operation Appreciation: Earl Lundy

After a devastating attack on his unit in Iraq, Earl Lundy was told he'd never walk again. He is a super human, defeating all odds.  It was a pleasure and a blessing meeting Earl!

14th Annual Lone Star Emmy Awards

 This year, I received two Lone Star Emmy nominations.  Our Hurricane special, Hurricane Heroes, won for Weather Special.  The Space Center Houston special, Independence Plaza: Innovation At Work and our Cadillac Shaping Houston: Anat Ronen were also nominees.
 I went to the ceremony with other people from work- Beth Winfrey (also nominated) who was our commercial producer, Bobby Rigg, our Creative Services manager and his wife.
This is the gentleman who beat our special Independence Plaza: Innovation At Work.  His documentary of remembering Vietnam deserved to win.  He wore his blues to show respect to all those who got none (respect).  He got a standing ovation.

What a great experience and incredible way to build excitement for next year!  Cheers!
