Exec Producer, Prom & Multimedia, KCPT
Over the past sixteen years, I've been proud to work for KCPT, Kansas City Public Television. It's afforded me the opportunity to produce, write, and direct a variety of media including promotional materials, interactive web sites, mobile applications and long-form documentaries. In 2010 I worked with an incredibly talented designer, Kelly Ludwig to co-produce the development of a travel iPhone application for the KCPT's national television series Rare Visions and Roadside Revelations. My long-form documentary work includes Bad Blood: The Border War That Triggered the Civil War, recipient of two Regional Emmys and a NETA citation for Best Historical Documentary, Tapping Kansas City: A Beer/Love Story, recipient of a Regional Emmy for Special Program, KC to Kanorado: An Uncommon View from I-70, a Regional Emmy award-winning travelogue narrated by Melissa Etheridge, and Assembly Required, recipient of a Regional Emmy for Special Program. I produced marketing content, on-air promotions, and the interactive website for the National Emmy Award winning documentary Be Good. Smile Pretty. I have received numerous NETA citations for both website productions (Rare Visions and Roadside Revelations) and on-air promotional campaigns and has received a Regional Emmy in the Public Service Announcement category for a multi-media campaign against childhood obesity, Eat Small! That campaign launched my newest passion - working with area agencies to create video content and multi-media resources in the area of children's health and wellness. We're using the power of public media, to augment the amazing work done in the Kansas City area everyday.
