Director's Statement:
I have spent more than 20 years as a broadcast journalist.  In 2003 I was embedded with troops in Kuwait for CBS and in 1997, for the Today Show, I climbed 3000 feet off the floor of Yosemite National Park.  I have stood on the Super Bowl sidelines interviewing All-Stars and in the line of fire capturing footage of the Desert War. I have reported, edited, produced and investigated. I have interviewed the well–known and also the know-it-alls – from athletes and celebrities to veterans and criminals.   But now, I have stepped behind the camera and want to hear your story.
