As a fire fighter I was always one event or one decision from being forced to make a career change. That fact became abundantly clear as I was in the hospital, recovering from a near-fatal accident in 1992.
So, in the years that followed, while I continued to provide for my family as a firefighter/paramedic, I went back to school and served an internship at a major Denver, CO television station. I learned to create epic, high-quality 3D video animations at low-cost, quickly and easily.
In anticipation of my retirement from a career in emergency services, I leveraged my college degrees in Instructional Design, Technology, Communications, and years of experience to begin a new career as the owner and executive producer at Hilltop Video Services (HVS).
I've created training and marketing videos for the United States Fire administration, professional counsellors, pet food suppliers and over 100 logo/branding videos for restaurants and small businesses.
