The following year, he moved them to Los Angeles, CA to be closer to the heart beat of the industry and his business associates. 

In the company’s 21 year existence, he maintained offices in Hollywood, Marina del Rey and Los Angeles, CA, Atlanta, GA,  Annapolis, MD and Washington, DC.

During the course of his 21 years in the production business, he produced or directed 1,000s of hours of programming for his varied clients.  The companies’ productions ranged from TV programming, government informational programs, IMAG presentations or consumer production services.

His decision to close his companies was, "My profound desire to be more productive in making the planet a better place for all humanity, to include all animal and plants life."

As was noted on the wall in his office on how he measured his success:

"To laugh often and much. To win the respect of intelligent
people and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics, and to endure the
betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty and to find the best in others.

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child,
A garden patch or a redeemed social condition;

To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived......

Ralph Waldo Emerson
