Emmy Winner

Medical Miracles:

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.
