This project is a Redmond Family Production. Join us as we meet with guests from all walks of life, having conversations about anything and everything.
Guests have included Actors & Actresses, Directors, Writers, Public Figures, Speakers, and more. I created the Again for the First time Podcast in 2022 and continue to host the show as new episodes are released on a weekly basis.
This documentary brings the viewer a firsthand look into the ongoing fentanyl and opioid crisis in the Central Valley.
Join us as we share with you the heartbreaking true stories of families that have been affected by this epidemic and give insight into the miracle treatment, Narcan, which has the potential to save countless lives.
I directed this documentary in 2021 and it aired in November to a sold-out theater audience. It was also shown on FOX26 News during the Crisis in the Valley special, which you can find here on YouTube.
This documentary shares insights from the historic players, staff, and fans that are the foundation of the hockey community of Fresno,CA.
The History of Hockey in Fresno first aired at the FHT Sports Hockey Hall of Fame awards ceremony and shares the very rich history of the 60 years of hockey in the Fresno area. It spans from the early days of the Fresno Falcons with their iconic green and gold colors to the modern day Fresno Monsters.
I produced and co-wrote this film out of my love and passion for the sport and the Fresno hockey community. You can find the full film here on CMAC.tv.
FST is a multi-platform video series in which my colleagues and I discuss a wide variety of sports teams, athletes, and games. From news about local sports teams to coverage on worldwide matches and events, we have it all.
Hockey, Baseball, Football, Basketball, Softball—we cover all your favorite sports here on Fresno Sports Talk! We founded FST in 2021 as an outlet for our passionate and competitive discussions about all things sports.
I currently work as the Director of Hockey Operations for the Fresno Monsters.
It's my job to create promotional material on social media to garner attention for games and get fans in those seats at the Gateway Ice Center. I organize all game day events: reserving food trucks for the parking lot, on-ice interactions with fans, sponsorships, ticket sales, and overall customer experience.
So come on down to the Gateway Ice Center and get your tickets now! It's always an edge-of-your-seat experience that you won't forget!
I have always felt very passionately about nonprofit work and have helped local foundations expand their brand and promote their mission and their cause.
I have previously worked as the Executive Director of a local nonprofit, PAIN, where we were awarded the 2021 Nonprofit of the Year by the CA State Legislature. During my tenure there, I managed budgets, organized events & fundraisers, directed a documentary, and wrote grant proposals. I am currently a marketing/branding consultant for the Zachary Horton Foundation. I help promote their events and their cause on social media and encourage local news media to provide coverage at those events.
Please, consider reading up on the stories behind these incredible organizations and contributing to their causes, or find a local nonprofit in your area and give back to your community in a way that you find meaningful.
Traditional business marketing has been my expertise for over 30 years.
I have worked for multiple large-scale businesses over the years, overseeing the organizing of presentations, meetings, and conventions to promote services and offerings. I also specialized in discovering new markets and locating opportunities for business growth. Other skills I attained throughout the years includes budget management, risk analysis, training initiatives, social media marketing, and business reporting for company stakeholders.

Grant Writing has become a very substantial and fulfilling part of my career in recent years and I have gained experience in both the public and private sectors.
My approach to Grant Writing could best be described as "creating an image of realism," i.e., the ability to paint the picture of the Cause, Concern, and Cure, and to do so in a succinct and truthful way while following the specific requirements set forth by those who may offer you the grant money you require.
I have always enjoyed persuasive writing and I feel truly grateful that I can use this skill in a way that benefits those in need. During my time at PAIN as Executive Director, I was also the Grants Manager. This involved writing proposals requesting funds from federal, local, and private organizations. These were essential to our budget as a nonprofit and allowed us more opportunities to spread our message and better help our community.
I currently write grant proposals for multiple schools in the Central Valley, including San Joaquin Memorial High School, where I am the head coach for their softball team.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, at a time before man walked on the moon, kids drank Tang after school, and Saturday morning cartoons meant everything. Always a reader and enthralled with television and movies, I graduated from Brooklyn College, where I was captain of the collegiate football team. I later went on to coach Division 3 Football and Division 1 Softball at Brooklyn College.
A self labeled warrior poet, I worked private security for celebrities and politicians, while also working as a bouncer throughout a variety of establishments in NYC for over 12 years. Upon meeting my future wife, I started a multi-decade award-winning career in sales and marketing leadership. From New York to Florida, Texas, Maine, Iowa, Chicago, Utah, Georgia, and now over a decade in California, my unique and proven approach to result-oriented strategies continues to expand my reach and scope of talent.
After receiving my Master's Degree in Education in 2014 with distinction, I have written and directed two documentaries, both playing to sold-out audiences. While working at a nonprofit, PAIN, as the Executive Director, the organization won Nonprofit of the Year in 2021 from the California Assembly. This was the same year that KMPH Fox 26 played the documentary that I directed on the fentanyl and opioid crisis in Central California.
As if my life wasn't adventurous enough already, I became the Director of Hockey Operations for the Fresno Monsters in 2019, and in 2021, co-founded Fresno Sports Talk as a companion project. A year later, I created my own podcast, Again for the First Time, to converse and connect with other uniquely adventurous individuals. I am also currently the Grants Manager for San Joaquin Memorial High School and have the privilege of coaching their softball team.
