He's been responsible for some of television's most memorable moments, from "Sports Illustrated's 20th Century Sports Awards" on CBS, which brought together the single greatest collective of living athletes in history, to great collaborative moments on a series of "DIVAS" shows he created for VH1; the historic "Night for John Lennon and New York City," produced just two weeks after the events of Sept. 11, 2001; the "LIVE8" show from Philadelphia; and several "In Performance at the White House" specials for PBS. Also, he has been involved in the creation and production of numerous music-related series, including "Motown Live," "The Dennis Miller Show" and, for two years, he produced the landmark series "Fame."
