based on a true story podcast

Started in April of 2016, Based on a True Story is my second podcast. The goal of the show is to dive into the true story behind movies that claim to be, well, based on a true story. Troy, Titanic, All the President’s Men and The Revenant are just a few of the 140+ episodes that have been produced. Overall, the podcast has been listened to millions of times by almost every country in the world.

Listen to the latest episode using the player below.

pixelhub podcast

For almost a year, Brian Collins and I hosted a weekly podcast of our own initiative. During the run of the podcast, Brian and I tag-teamed on hosting, scheduling and coordinating interviews, research and strategy for the interviews. He and I also did most of the audio editing in Audition to create the final podcast audio.

Here’s a sample of the episodes to show some of the various roles I performed. If you’d like to hear more episodes, let me know.

writing

Over the years, I’ve written, ghostwritten, or been the copy editor for thousands of articles. Instead of listing them all here I just have a small sample of articles to show some of the variety of roles I’ve had.

As of September 2016, Pluralsight announced they will no longer be updating the creative content formerly known as Digital-Tutors. That’s why I’ve included screenshots of those articles. If you’d like to see more, just let me know.
