FILM
Screen shot of Bridge to a Brighter Future
Short Documentary: Independent Living Programs—The Bridge to a Brighter Future
In 1994, with only about six weeks to work with, I conducted interviews, solicited other films, produced, wrote and directed this short film to help explain why Independent Living Programs are important programs worthy of the Congressional funding that was in jeapordy at the time. We sent this video to every member of Congress and, against the odds, our efforts saved funding for these vital programs. Click here to play video.

PSA: Business Software Alliance
In 2002, I was asked to create two PSAs for the Business Software Alliance to encourage youth to stop downloading illegal copies of software. The video featured an up-and-coming boy band called Next Page and was shot in Franklin, TN. Click here to play video.
