Where it all began:
My broadcast career spanned 16 years at CNN Headline News and CNN, from 1983 to 1999. I started as a VJ and worked my way up to a Senior Broadcast Designer. It was really a rare opportunity to be in on the ground floor of a company rocketing skyward.
It was a privilege to walk the floor with the likes of Ted Turner and Ted Kavanau.
Art Directors Fran Heaney and Ann Williams were teaching us, as they broke new ground. Later, Art Director Mark Wright led us through new technology changes while highlighting each artist’s individual talents. Here are a few examples of some of the work I did while there. We’ll start with stills from animated opens and move into daily news stills, award shows, an award and recognition.
