a little bit about me...
I am a fourth generation Coloradan and an award-winning writer-producer-director-editor. Although I hold a B.A. in International Affairs and Economics (from Vesalius College in Brussels, Belgium), my passion has always been storytelling.
Since 1999 I have produced and directed over 1000 documentaries on topics across the US and abroad and created several Emmy Award-winning shows for Rocky Mountain PBS including Sand Creek Massacre, Great Ingredients, Standing in the Gap, Swift Justice, Haiti’s Small Miracles and Colorado Experience.
From 1999 to 2009, I served as the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Little Voice Productions Inc. – a 501C3 with a mission of educating and inspiring positive social change through media and technology. From 2011 to 2021 I served in many creative roles at Rocky Mountain PBS / Rocky Mountain Public Media and am currently a preferred production partner for that organization.
Now I'm a proud member of the media Co-Op: Truce Media Collective.
I am a licensed drone pilot, and skilled videographer and director and I write and edit my own work when time permits. A lifelong student of “emotional intelligence”, I put a strong emphasis on emotions and the human spirit in my work. When I'm not working on creative projects, I spend time painting, reading, cooking, gardening, hiking, doing handstands, skiing or mountain biking. I am fluent in French and travel extensively throughout the world. I have produced videos across the United States, as well as Africa, Mexico, South America, Israel, and The Caribbean.
Very active in my community, I spend time volunteering and serving on several nonprofit boards. I was a founding board member of The Chanda Plan Foundation and have served on the Rotary Youth Exchange Committee and hosted several foreign exchange students. I currently serve on the board of National History Day in Colorado.
I received my BA Degree in International Affairs & Economics from Vesalius College in association with Boston University, in Brussels, Belgium. Notable post academic endeavors include Denver Community Leadership Forum & Outward Bound.
I live in Salida & Denver, Colorado with my husband Patrick, our 3 children and Aayla, our German Shepherd.
I would love to put my skills to work for you!
All the best,
Julie Speer Jackson
