His recent documentary, HEROES ON DECK: World War II on Lake Michigan, continues its current national broadcasts. His series credits include producing the popular, local, Wild Chicago, and he’s now roaming the USA creating WILD TRAVELS, a guide to America's most unusual, offbeat and quirky destinations, seen nationally on PBS stations.
