Below are a few of my favorite segments from my time with
South Dakota Public Broadcasting. As a producer, I wrote the script, conducted the interviews, and completed whatever other random tasks* needed to be done.


*Random tasks could be setting up a microphone, carrying equipment up a hillside, or helping spot antelope. Every segment is different!

I can tell you this...


My current Work In Progressis a middle-grade fantasy set in the deep woods, where a young mouse must face some of the forest's most daunting foes* to save his newborn sibling.

  • Snakes

  • Owls
