When Discovery Channel returned to Youngstown for re-shoots following the end of principal photography on season two of Fat N' Furious, I was brought on to a skeleton crew to run the production department and to assist the camera department. In this capacity I worked side by side with the Executive Producer, and reported directly to the Executive in Charge of Production in Los Angeles. I set up field shoots and conducted on-camera interviews, assisted in all aspects of photography on set, oversaw the collection of all deliverables for the network, and managed all the day to day logistical needs of the television crew and the automotive garage.
