ADDITIONAL PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
FILM PRODUCTION – CONSULTANT* / LINE PRODUCER
A lifetime of experience in film production as a Line Producer, Production Manager, Writer, Director, Location Scout, Location Manager, Transportation Coordinator, Logistics & Operations Coordinator, Field Coordinator and Stunt Safety Coordinator. I am also an accomplished photographer, videographer and cameraman. My career began in high school when I was shooting both 35 mm stills and 16 mm motion pictures. With this experience, I understand the inspirations and frustrations of the creative and photographic people. On the flip side, my business background contributes to my reverence for logistics, budgets and the necessity of working with personnel and locations in a way that satisfies all aspects of the production. I designed and produced the “Light the Fire Within” campaign for the USOC 2002 Winter Olympics, bringing this massive project to fruition 15% under budget! My Photography was utilized by Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah in their advertising materials for many years. Other recent COMMERCIAL & PRINT AD credits (including Visa, Chevy, NBA, Toyota, Jeep, Kellogg’s, Honda, Volkswagen, GMC, Volvo, Dodge Trucks, Ford, Blair, Talbot's, Chadwick's, etc.) available upon request.
NOTABLE RECENT ACHIEVEMENTS
Managing Partner of Clark’s Pharmacy, Kremmling, Colorado. My involvement with Clark’s began as a small investment that rapidly expanded to require more than passive interest. In 2003, problems with the business required my full time attention. At the time when I took full management control, the business was six figures in debt and nearly bankrupt. Twenty-four months afterward, the prescription portion of the pharmacy business alone sold for a very reasonable six-figure sum. (Kremmling is a remote mountain town with a population of only 1500 people.)
Contract - Operations and Program Coordinator with MDE International, Inc. Burton, Michigan and Commerce City, Colorado for Navistar Truck/Engine testing and evaluation. Organized and implemented new facility and operations at this site. Later transferred to Aurora, Colorado to streamline Hino Trucks (Toyota) new engine testing program. This assignment involved working with a continually revolving group of Japanese engineers and dozens of employees in a 24/7 environment. Highly successful enhancements to operations were implemented using my production development and management skills. This success lead to similar program development and coordination at the Aurora site for PACCAR Corp. (Peterbilt trucks). 2009 through mid-2014. Further information is not permitted by non-disclosure agreements.
EDUCATION and beyond
Four plus years at Brigham Young University with simultaneous majors in Zoology and Chemistry and a minor in Business and Marketing. (This was also my defacto classroom for extreme alpine skiing and climbing.) I was recruited by AMOCO Oil Company (Marketing Div.) before graduation and immediately put to work helping to salvage a floundering public relations and informational unit. My early background in film played a major role in this employment. I later enjoyed an active relationship with AMOCO as a consultant for several years.
