If you put me in a room full of CEO’s and Computer Geeks, I am the guy that can translate. Think about the scene in “Airplane” where Barbara Billingsley is speaking Jive.

Wheeling Skatepark Fund Raising

DEDICATION
The Wheeling Rotary Club Recognized at Wheeling Skate Park Dedication Ceremony

Wheeling City Officials and Wheeling Skate Park Committee Members hosted a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for the Wheeling Skate DSC01464Park on Sunday, October 21st. The generous support of individuals, businesses, and organizations like the Wheeling Rotary Club helped get the park funded and built.

Wheeling Rotary Club member, Bryan Murray signed on with the Wheeling Skate Park Committee in 2004. This grass-roots group had big dreams and little money for the daunting $330,000 project. Murray approached then Rotary Club President, John Egan McAteer about getting the Rotary Club involved. A committee was formed that included Bryan Murray, Dick Koehler, John Morrsion and John Egan McAteer.

The committee met regularly and worked behind the scenes to get more of the business community in support of the skate park. skatersWelcomedThe Wheeling Rotary Club held a celebrity waiter event, collected donations and used existing club funds to raise money for the project. They were able to double the donation with a matching District Simplified Grant. The funds were donated to the project in 2006 as the Wheeling Rotary Club’s Centenial Project. The Rotary Club’s involvement, city funding and a myriad of other donations helped the Wheeling Skate Park Committee get a subsequent matching federal grant to make the park possible.

MTV Reality Show Gig

 MTV PILOT

I got the call from MTV to work on one of the first ever Reality TV Shows: “FEAR”. We set up over 74 hidden cameras in an abandoned prison. Contestants had to stay several nights in this haunted site. I worked on all aspects of the production.

The halo camera’s developed for this show have been used by countless reality shows.

Surfer Magazine Article

 

My friend photographer Ward Callum and I worked hard to get lots of pictures to submit for this article.   It was published in the December Issue of 1985.  At the time  I was studying Mass Media @ Chapel Hill and this was a good score to account for my missing classes for surfing.

Surfer Magazine  collected photographs from a variety of other sources as well. It was written by Mickey Bednarek of Wave Riding Vehicles.  During this time period the Outer Banks surf scene was very underground and not on the national radar at all.  Mickey does a great job of explaining the pros and cons that the exposure would bring. I was fortunate to have them select a photograph of me as well.
