Like many of us, Craig was a self starter and self-learner at a young age by taking control of and mastering the audio-visual equipment of his school’s media center. Today he is a filmmaker and producer. Over the past two decades Craig was the producer of hundreds of hours of television. Most recently he was the Senior Supervising Producer for Greedy Productions in Vancouver, Canada. Craig supervised the production of a number of TV shows like EP Daily and Reviews On The Run for a total of twelve half-hour shows a week. Craig's first role at Greedy was Senior Supervising Producer for The Lab With Leo Laporte, an hour long call-in tech show hosted by Tech guru Leo Laporte.
