The simple question, “Why?,” burns at the heart of my desire to know the truth. I began working as a journalist in 1998, as a writer with The Comet, the student newspaper at the University of Texas at Dallas. Over the next decade, I moved on to cover community news in San Diego, and eventually progressed to become an editor of the Dallas Morning News’ triple crown-winning sports section, SportsDay.
While my creative interests later evolved into filmmaking, the documentaries that I have produced possess a strong foundation in journalistic research and writing. I strongly believe that it remains the duty of the independent journalist to provide an objective perspective of events and serve as a source of unbiased information to the public, so that citizens can make the best possible decisions in guiding the courses of their lives.
