Being born many years ago to an Undertaker/Funeral Director on the southwest side of Chicago who happened to be a very respected hobby photographer, I was exposed to cameras at a very early age. My father loved photography and working with cameras and, luckily, his passions for it were passed along to me.
As a result I've been working in video production for many years now and, added to the standard mix of production and editing work any small, independent Producer depends on, there is the additional joy I have of producing the, "American Barn Stories and Other Tales from the Heartlands" TV series which has been seen on PBS stations across the country. The latest episode was recently cleared for air and is awaiting air dates in 2016.
Through the production of the shows I've developed a nice, general-interest one-hour program that profiles the old barns effort and it's a great presentation for many diverse groups.
And even better, there is a motivational presentation for corporate and school groups that takes the old barns theme even farther and includes other media inputs that add much to our lives and minds on many levels.
Witness blind people racing stock cars against each other, an old Wisconsin dairy farmer living his life with his cows, dozens of people gatherting to work as a team in the coutryside to re-erect an old barn the old fashioned way with horses and, in the end, gain a good look at the big picture of everything that really matters in our business or personal lives!
I'm very much looking forward to meeting the members of the Speakermatch community and hope that you will see an opportunity sometime soon to have me visit and interact with your groups. I can promise a very enjoyable and rewarding experience on many levels and will be happy to send you a complimentary demo DVD copy of what I have to offer -- please feel free to get in touch! 262-248-9650 firstname.lastname@example.org www.americanbarnstories.net
