He has designed over 180 PBS Episodes and 40 (hour long) Home Videos for the Big Purple Guy. The Home Videos were both multi-sound stage sets as well as locations.
He has created designs for pilots 'Camp AOK' and a new children’s cooking show (yet to be titled) that was heading for PBS. He has created Pre-visualization environments for the ‘3D’ animated 'Boz the Bear' and designed sets for Location Shoots, Historical Reenactment, Corporate Events and have experience in High Definition Video. His Live Theater Designs (120 productions) include Musicals, Drama, and Children’s Theater.
