who we are

I have produced media for nearly twenty years, with the bulk of my work focusing on educational media and projects for social service agencies.

Presently, I am working on an interactive Internet radio program, Van Go Radio, which uses radio drama to spark discussion among 5th and 6th graders in classrooms and after-school programs across the country. The conversation focuses on social and ethical conflicts preteens face and ways to resolve them. To learn more about Van Go Radio visit www.vangoradio.org.

I recently produced and co-wrote It’s Elementary: Total Immersion in a Boston Public School, an introduction to an innovative teacher-training program on the Apple Learning Exchange website at http://ali.apple.com/ali_sites/ali/xp.php.

As series producer for the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, I worked with educators and scientists to create seven, eight-hour television workshop series with accompanying curricula and websites for the Annenberg/CPB satellite network. You may view some of the following work at www.learner.org/channel/workshops: Looking at Learning…Again, Part 1, Looking at Learning…Again, Part 2, Mathematics: What’s the Big Idea?, The Next Move, Science in Focus: Energy, Science in Focus: Force and Motion, Science in Focus: Shedding Light on Science.

During my eight-year tenure as staff producer for the Massachusetts Corporation for Educational Telecommunications (MCET), I worked closely with educators to create hundreds of national satellite television programs with accompanying curriculum guides for K-12 students, as well as professional development series for teachers.

Earlier in my career I worked for the City of Boston, Commission on the Affairs of the Elderly, producing cable television programs covering a myriad of topics of interest to Boston's diverse senior population. These programs included Elder Times, a monthly magazine-format program, and Closing the Gap, a series of conversations between elders and teens. I also wrote a monthly column for the Boston-based newspaper, Boston Seniority.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to collaborate on interesting projects with many social services agencies, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions, including, Harvard University's Arnold Arboretum, Dana Farber Cancer Research Institute, Facing History and Ourselves, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the National Preservation Society, the New England Aquarium, Northeastern University Center for Sport and Society, Lesley University Graduate School of Education, City of Boston Transportation Department, The Villers Foundation, Tax Equity Alliance for Massachusetts, and Union Neighborhood Assistance Corporation.

My work has garnered recognition from several educational groups and video festivals including: Houston WorldFest (bronze), TIME/NASBE Outstanding Contributions for Voter Education, TeleCon Awards for Best Distance Learning Program K-12 (second and third place), Learning by Satellite Award, Outstanding Contribution to Distance Learning, and Hometown USA.
