A Midwesterner with roots in Minneapolis and Chicago, TW moved to Los Angeles and began working for 20th Television’s “Personalities” and “Entertainment Daily Journal,” first as a story coordinator and then as a field-producer/director.
Following a stint at KTTV-Fox 11 producing news promos, he moved over to Disney’s syndicated arm, Buena Vista Television (now called DADT), as a Director of Video Production, where he helped develop the ABC medical-reality show “Vital Signs.”
TW left the Disney lot after five years to field-produce and direct more than 100 segments of “House Calls,” a nationally syndicated reality show, then scripted a number of episodes for Discovery Channel’s “More Than Human” series.
For the past 20 years, he’s written and produced tons of TV promos, bonus features, radio spots and sales presentations for a variety of clients, including Disney, Fox, NBC, Scripps, NFL Network and Sony. Additionally, he’s directed countless shoots with both celebrities and ‘real people’ on green screen, in studio and on location.
TW has migrated back to the Midwest and lives once again in Sweet Home Chicago.
