I make TV Content.

Job TV Producer / Showrunner / Content Creator / Freelance

Lives In Munjoy Hill

I'm a veteran factual TV producer/writer/showrunner/content creator/development consultant whose work has taken me to all fifty American states, and six of the seven continents on earth. But not quite Antarctica … yet.  ;-)

Over the years I've conceived/developed/produced non-fiction series programming for ABC, NBC ("America's Toughest Job," "Treasure Hunters"), CBS ("Amazing Race"), FOX, History Channel ("Chasing Mummies," "American Hard Hat"), Audience Network ("Religion of Sports"), National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel ("The Wheel," "American Tarzan", "Bone Detectives"), Discovery I.D. ("Homicide Hunter"), Animal Planet ("North Woods Law"), Destination America ("Haunted Towns"), Travel Channel, Outdoor Life Channel ("Beyond the Summit: Everest"), Food Network ("Great Food Truck Race"), TBS, PBS, Esquire Network ("The Runner Up"), VH1, World Wrestling Entertainment ("Breaking Ground"), YouTube Red, the World Wide Web, and probably a few others that I'm forgetting right now.  But around here, chuckle, I'm pretty much known as "the Guy who invented North Woods Law."

 

A native of Los Angeles, I grew up in California and Hawaii, and now happily split time between Santa Monica, CA, and Portland's Munjoy Hill.

Why did you choose Portland? Well, it kind of chose me, actually. Chuckle, long story....

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? The ferry ride to Peaks Island is always fun. So are Sea Dogs games. And sometimes, Downeaster to Green Line to Fenway Park!

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Walking and peddling around town. We live on Munjoy Hill, so we walk everywhere in the area -- East End, West End, Old Port, Back Cove, etc. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore on foot and bike.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Pizza and Ice Cream! Everywhere from Otto's to Portland Pie Company to Beals to DQ.

What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? See #5 above re Fort Gorges.

Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland. See #4 above ... and add "dinner" at one of Portland's many restaurants.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Yep, our back deck on a summer day, with a cold beer, overlooking everything.
