Medical Miracles - Medical Producer
The series was produced by WKYC-TV in
collaboration with Cleveland Clinic
from 2000 - 2006
We produced 32 half-hour documentaries.
When the series began I was the photographer/editor but after two other producers left the series, I became the producer/writer/photographer/editor from 2002 - 2006.
Yes, I was a one-man band producing the shows from 2002-2006.
My mentor, Dennis Goulden, produced the first season and I'm eternally grateful for his teaching, wisdom and experience. I could not have had a better mentor to teach me the ropes of producing a documentary with the challenges of balancing the interests of corporate marketing representatives against journalistic ethics.
New Frontiers in Research 2004
One of my favorite shows.
I enjoyed producing Medical Miracles.
It was a great experience meeting patients, scientists, and doctors.
I liked the challenge of finding creative ways to tell their stories.
Emmy Nominated - Writing
Pandemic: When the Flu Hits Home - 2005
The fear of the bird flu (H5N1 virus) inspired WKYC-TV to produce this production.
I produced this like the Medical Miracles shows, as a one-man band. I traveled to Cornell University, hired my nephew to help me lug the gear, and was very happy with the result.
I enjoyed the research, the interviewing and the writing more than any other piece.
This is the first segment of the show.
