Producer, Series Director of Photography, "Deadliest Catch"

Original Productions

2001 – December 2010 (9 years) Bering Sea, Alaska

Having served as a founding producer of this show, it has pleased me greatly to see how it has “changed the game," effectively creating a new genre of television shows, each hoping to enjoy the same success as “Catch." Today “Deadliest Catch” is broadcast in 180 countries and presented in 45 languages.

For my work on this landmark show, I have been fortunate to garner 8 Primetime Emmy nominations, and was honored with an Emmy Award in 2008. As "Catch" is currently nominated in three categories, it is my hope that the show will sweep the Emmys again this year.
