Talk:

"Bob Ennis and I have been talking about doing a travel program project in Florida for many years and finally we're finding some time to get the concept out there. My family has had a house in West Palm Beachfor decades, so it is a place that is close to my heart. Bob's Circlevision360 program that he shot for Disney has been playing at the Epcot Center for three decades now."

"It’s all about telling stories. As a director with many years experience, I’ve worked in feature film, direct to video and television for a number of different audiences. I love being faced with a new challenge in creative thinking and digital problem solving and I excel at efficiently, quickly and effectively enhancing stories of all kinds."

"A graphic designer is an information organizer - they have to assemble that information into a product that meets the clients needs. We may have to provide photography, illustration, copy or work with that which is provided. We may rework a photo to update a change in the product, assemble multiple photos to achieve the desired result or do an illustration for something that is only an idea at the time."
