The guy we call “Boss”


Thomas “Tom” Hegewald

I got my start in television production at WGVU (Public Broadcasting) while earning a degree in Film/Video Production at Grand Valley State University. As a production assistant, I learned all aspects of production: operating cameras, audio, directing and producing.

I like to be challenged creatively. Working on this series I’ve been able to hone my technical skills while also developing as an artist and storyteller. Evenings and weekends are reserved for working on the OnPoint series, for which I serve primarily as the Executive Producer and director. (Or, as Nancy explains, “Tom does all the ‘bossy’ stuff.”) OnPoint is the third television series I have produced and directed.

Every time we complete an episode I’m reminded that life is full of adventures and how enriching those adventures can be.
