For the past 25 years my wife and I have traveled the country writing, reporting, shooting and producing videos on all kinds of subjects. We enjoy meeting people and telling their stories. But nothing matches the uplifting experience of our recent Let's Roll America roadtrip. It was such a joy meeting so many hard-working, patriotic, freedom-loving Americans from all walks of life.

I'm a former TV news reporter, writer and producer with 50 years experience in news and public policy reporting. I've piled up a few awards, including three local Emmys, in my half-century of work.
In Washington, D.C. I reported for the local ABC news station covering the Federal Government, Economics and Personal Finance. I did that for 10 years. Earlier in my career I wrote and produced the 6pm or 11pm news at TV stations in Washington, DC; Detroit, Miami and Louisville. For more details, there's a PDF of my bio below.
This was a Federally-funded package of 36 training videos I wrote and produced for the National White Collar Crime Center. The videos trained state, local and Federal law enforcement on how to detect and solve computer and Internet crime. The program also showed how digital evidence helps solve cases involving violent crime. The project used real world criminal cases and was shot on location with more than a dozen law enforcement agencies around the country.
This package of 38 videos featured my interviews with students and professors offering inside tips on how to succeed in college. Five major universities purchased a DVD copy for each freshman student. The videos show first year students how to study, how to take various types of tests, how to take notes in class, how to write college-level papers, etc. The project was shot on location at a dozen college campuses ranging from small private schools to large public universities.
