Doug is known for capturing breathtaking footage of the Canadian Wilderness…incredible shots of the Rocky Mountains, aerial footage of forest fires, and rarely seen images of Canadian Wildlife. Doug’s work is appealing because of the drama, depth, and incredible storytelling power it holds. With a deep understanding (and love) of music and the power of harmonizing the soundtrack to the story – Doug sets himself apart from many producers/directors.

The masterpiece “This is My America” is a timeless treasure that is still played extensively today.
Doug taught the music industry how to let the reins loose by way of providing clear parameters for the project and allowing the artist the freedom to write and create material and works of art that were near and dear to their heart. His approach is a wonderful catalyst to creativity, as it is not stifling. He has built and nurtured countless careers in the music industry. Doug has helped musicians find the joy in their writing again.

One word resonates with many who have touched Doug’s work. Truth. Doug is a proponent of education. His work is rooted in family values, and educating through his amazing talents of storytelling and creativity. Historians note the validity and accuracy of his work, even in the music genre. In the This is My America project, he wanted truth in the making of it, the freedom to enjoy the output, and the freedom of choosing what steps and actions the listener would take as a result of being richer for enjoying the compilation.
Through the art of his storytelling and the mastery of his craft Doug’s mission to learn through history and set the stage to make the future better, is easily articulated by all that he works with, a true testament to his leadership ability.
