He has consistently exceeded my expectations and has always proven himself to be a very versatile media writer/director/producer/editor. I am most impressed with his professionalism, his ability to see the big picture as well as pay attention to the details, and his creative spirit and artistic eye. He is a delight to work with at every stage in the production process.April 19, 2009 by Susan Havesn of On Cue Media / Flower Mound, TX “Throughout my 20-year TV News and programming career, I’ve worked with a literally hundreds of producers & directors. Never before have I experienced such amazing talent, business acumen and genuine sincerity bundled in one person. Kurt pours himself into every project with the utmost dedication and devotion to pleasing the client (which really isn’t that hard for him!) and a heart-of-gold. He’s always on-time, on-target and on-top of every little detail. And I say all of this from multiple perspectives having worked with him as (1) a talent, (2) the client and (3) a co-producer.
