Below I will share all the information on the workshop. I just want to share with you why I love doing it. I started working in television 26 years ago. I fell into my profession through a “spiritual calling” I did not even study journalism after college. I worked internationally in marketing, but one day my inner voice and my best friend at the time reminded me that what I really wanted to be all along and had forgotten was a truthful storyteller. I began my career learning everything I could about the business. I started as a reporter but I also learned to shoot, edit, write, anchor, telepromter, audio etc. Over time, I created a strong production internship program with my former employer (Houston PBS) I loved teaching young students the art of storytelling. Many have gone on to do very well. Some work in Hollywood, some in New York, others have become local news reporters. I am still in touch with most of them. So besides my production company and the work we do, I take a chance when I can to teach what I have learned. I also teach because I learn from participants more than you can imagine! I hope you will come. I can assure you. It will be fun, unforgettable and challenging. You will not be bored!!!
