In ‘75-’76, he was a key figure in putting together what was then the most ambitious live special in the history of television: Eleven hours live with over seventy location remotes from around the world for NBC’s Bicentennial celebration called THE GLORIOUS FOURTH. In the first half-hour of this program, remotes set-up over a period of ten months included those switched live from the DMZ in Korea to the Vatican, to NYC’s Operation Sail, to surfers on our Pacific coast. NBC’s legendary 8H and 8G studios were utilized in tandem to traffic all hard line and microwave transmissions from around the globe throughout the day. Also featured was the world’s first on-location remote via satellite, courtesy of a COMSAT prototype uplink station positioned in Yellowstone National Park.

In affiliation with ANTHONY POTTER PRODUCTIONS in NY, additional projects at the time included THE PRESIDENTS - four PBS one hour specials with former Presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan, a thirteen part series on WWII fighter aces for the DISCOVERY CHANNEL called HUNTERS IN THE SKY, and worldwide shooting for SPIES, a twenty-six half-hour series on espionage for A&E.
Since 2000, his company served as head creative services and production provider for Central Florida’s MYMEDIAWORKS advertising, a DYNETECH corporation.
