JM associates was, and still is, a full blown television production company and I volunteered a lot to be an assistant on video shoots. Eventually I was working as much in field production as in post-production. I then began to realize that the things I had learned about visual arts at Auburn could be translated to the moving image in terms of graphics, but also in terms of the bigger umbrella of storytelling through video. So I became a producer/director in short time, and after a few years, I began a career on camera hosting outdoor shows for ESPN. I was an interstitial host of ESPN Outdoors on Sunday mornings and even had my own thirty minute show, called Cumberland Stories, where I told stories to viewers about the outdoors around the simple, but compelling experiences one could have in small, modest settings. My concept was that you didn’t have to spend thousands of dollars to go fly fishing on the Miramichi River in Canada to sample the joys of the outdoors. I did things like bream fishing with an 80 year old African American guide out of a flat bottom boat at Caddo Lake Texas or waded for redfish off the coast of Biloxi.
