I've been a network news cameraman, video editor and producer
since 1982. I'm also married to Phyllis, a former NBC Today Show producer and we make one heck of a video production team!
Prior to the networks, I worked in local television news as an anchor and I was an award-winning journalist.
I often shot and edited my own stories.
Now, you can hire network news veterans to produce your video.
