I am a firm believer that forks in the road are a good thing even if you get detoured a bit. You can always find your way to great experiences—it's all in your attitude.


My road in life has taken me all over.
After college, I worked in the news business as an anchor, producer, and reporter in Waco, TX. Loved it but got a chance to travel the world and make travel documentaries for four years—BEST JOB EVER!
After my travel job, didn't want back in news business, got into Corporate events and theater and found my new passion.
Had a baby, quit my corporate job and started my own company, PK Works, at the same time.
Went on to celebrate 25 years in business with PK Works and really excelled in family and work.
So, what I'm pointing out, and what I have always told my three daughters—life isn't a straight line, it's a series of detours, just make sure you are prepared when new opportunity knocks.
I am a firm believer that forks in the road are a good thing even if you get detoured a bit, you can always find your way to great experiences, it's all in your attitude.
After my three back surgeries and total knee replacement, I thought I would never feel well enough to work again. Thanks for PT, I'm 100% and ready to work.
I retired but I miss telling stories and want to get back to it.

Day to Day

The phone—my friend. I spend a lot of my day on the phone finding out people's stories and how I will tell them in the documentary video. Every project I create, I spend a lot of time to get background which allows me to gather the team, the equipment and the talent I need to make a great film. I create the timeline for pre-pro-production and post then get to work.
