When I was in high school, I fell in love with photography. I went on to Sam Houston State University to get a Bachelor of Science degree in still photography. After graduation from college, I stumbled upon a job as a video photographer for a TV station. This shifted me from stills to video. My television news photography career lasted 10 years where I won 8 Rocky Mountain Emmy awards, Arizona Press Photographer of the Year award, and numerous National Press Photographer awards for my work.
After getting married and starting a family, I came to the conclusion that I didn’t want to continue chasing after all that “bad news.” My heart began aching to tell “good news”. God answered my prayers and for over eleven years I was on staff with a wonderful video production company: IMS Productions. It was there where I learned how to find “the heart of a story”, not just the who, what, where, when, and why. This is what really got me excited… telling real stories about people and organizations making a positive difference in the world, and doing so in an emotionally compelling way. This became my passion.
September 11 had a profound impact on me. I was on a “one man band” filming assignment, filming in the Ukraine, Kenya, India, and the Philippines. When the terrorist attacks hit America, there were questions, confusion and fear. What if there are more planes to be targeted? Do I come home? Do I continue on with my filming assignment?
Only one conclusion could be reached… continue. To abort the assignment would be exactly what the enemy would want. I came to realize that in a world full of evil, the “good news” needs to be communicated all the more.
Shortly after 9/11, contributions receded for most non-profit organizations. Therefore, they needed help all the more with their limited funds. That’s what motivated me to leave the video company I was with and go out on my own where I could serve these ministries in a much more cost-effective way. That’s where I am today… an independent filmmaker/storyteller with a little production company called Global Reality.
