Production Equipment Manager
National Geographic Television & NGC Channels Worldwide
1993-2001

As the Equipment Room Manager at National Geographic Television, my job required tremendous prior knowledge of all video, motion picture, photographic, outdoors and expedition equipment.

In this position, I evaluated and acquired all relevant motion picture, video, photographic, sound, lighting, field and expedition equipment and, oversaw daily operations of equipment room with an inventory valued over $30 million. My job also required to sometimes fabricate specialty mounts, housings and equipment to support production. I introduced Steadicam, Glidecam, Sony DVCAM™, Panasonic DVCPRO™ and later Sony, Panasonic and Ikegami HD technology.

As an outfitter of expedition, camping and clothing for production, I kept up with the latest gear trends, as well as formulated and maintained relationships with diverse equipment and clothing manufacturers.

Aside from providing equipment, I consulted Producers, AP’s and staff on visual ideas through production equipment techniques and various diverse equipment applications to tell a story.
