The educational initiative was formed in 2010 as a creative collaboration between myself and West Texas A&M professor, Dr. Raymond S. Matlack. Texas Wild chronicles two wildlife biologist as they live full time on the road, traveling to document wildlife for the purpose of furthering conservation through entertaining and educational means. Texas Wild started as a grassroots movement and gained momentum through my moderation of social media accounts and through backing by supporters. Such strides expanded the initiative into the public sphere. As co-creator, host, assistant director, videographer and social media creator/moderator, my role in Texas Wild pertained to filming, fundraising, script writing, editing, research, location scouting, media events and more.
Currently, there are sixteen segments airing on PBS stations, to view the remaining segments please visit the PBS link below.
