My first commercial with Diamond studios was in 1996. Former Miss America, Heather Whitestone and Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz were spokespersons for Express Oil Change. With a celebrity’s limited time, everything had to be organized to the minute. Diamond pulled it off. Since that time, I have created dozens of other commercials for the Alabama Department of Mental Health and the Governor’s Office…all with Diamond. Additionally, we have made several documentary films together, including one that received an award from Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Most recently, Diamond helped film tornado relief spots for the Department of Mental Health’s crisis counseling response to the April, 2011 tornado disaster. The spokespersons were NCAA national championship coaches Nick Saban and Gene Chizik. Diamond pulled it off.
