That's a Wrap! Retiring from 20 Years of Childrens Television Production

behind the scenes Dec 03, 2021

After nearly 20 years, I'm officially retiring from my work with children's television production!     

For the last two decades, while growing my training and coaching practice, I worked as a producer and educator on multiple nationally syndicated PBS Kids shows and web series produced by GBH in Boston.  

Here are the shows I had the pleasure of producing live-action activity segments for: 

  • The Curious George Show
  • Peep and the Big Wide World
  • Pinkalicious and Peterrific
  • Fetch with Ruff Ruffman
  • Plum Landing
  • Matha Speaks
  • Design Squad
  • Arthur 

So, why retire from such amazing work?  Two primary reasons. 

  1. My work as a trainer and coach has grown to the point where I don't need the work.  Hooray for me!  

  2. Specializing in community-building and using media to educate & inspire,  I want to use my skills to strengthen the social fabric of society and engage people with the justice issues of our time.          

Conversation and community can serve as a catalyst for building trust, deepening understanding, and inspiring action on the issues we care about.  

That's it!   I'll share more on what's next --- new projects coming!!! --- after the New Year.

Video Examples

Below are some of the many video segments we've produced over the years.  For all of these, I'm just off-camera working with the participating children, running the activity, tracking our educational objectives, and more!
