And...

Donald Devet, puppeteer

I'd moved to New York from Charlotte, NC where for 18 years I was a professional puppeteer, performing across the country and producing puppet shows for both theater and television. The art of puppetry had intrigued me since childhood.

Donald Devet as "Stanley"

In junior in high school puppetry helped me get my foot in the door of the local CBS affiliated station in Columbia, SC. For the next 6 years, I soaked up all I could about how television works hosting and producing a weekly children's show, "Stanley."

Donald Devet in Korea

After college, I was drafted during the Vietnam War, but was fortunate to be assigned as a broadcast specialist for American Forces Korean Network in Seoul.

Donald Devet directing a docu-drama

My first full-time civilian job was back in Charlotte, where I spent 11 years in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools' instructional television division, writing, producing and hosting dozens of programs, including a nationally distributed children's series on holidays and three historical docudramas.

Experience.

I'm using my accumulated media experience to create one-of-a-kind videos of the people, places, and events of our lives.
