Out of Time (2003) as Dialogue Editor
Suppose everything you knew--everything you trusted --became a lie. For Matt Lee Whitlock, that nightmare has become a reality. Matt is the chief of police in small Banyan Key, Florida. A hardworking man who's good at his job, he's respected by his peers and beloved by his community. But when Banyan Key is shocked by a brutal double homicide, Matt starts his investigation--and his life starts to unravel. As details of the case begin to surface, all of the evidence points to Matt as the prime suspect. Now with the investigation in full swing and several people working the case, Matt finds himself in a race against time to solve the murders before others uncover the clues he's finding and he himself falls under suspicion. He has to stay a few steps ahead of his own police force and everyone he's trusted in order to clear his name and uncover the horrifying truth. It becomes all too apparent that the truth is on Matt's side--time, however, is not.

Stuart Little 2 (2002)
Two years have passed since we last visited the Little family and much has changed. Stuart has blossomed and settled nicely into his new life. He goes to school (in his very own car), is very handy when it comes to building model airplanes and is proud of the fact he made the soccer team. He loves having a big brother, George and new baby sister, Martha with whom he can play. Even Snowbell, the curmudgeonly cat with an attitude, has warmed up to Stuart in his own way. All is well in the Little world, but even so, Stuart yearns for a friend of his own--someone like him. Driving home from school, Stuart hears a loud squawk and suddenly an injured bird falls out of the sky, landing in the passenger seat of his car. When she regains consciousness, the mysterious bird introduces herself as Margalo. Frightened, she tells Stuart she is being threatened by Falcon, a feared crime lord who terrorizes all creatures living Manhattan. When Stuart learns the Margalo doesn't have a place to live he insists she stay with the Littles. Mr. and Mrs. Little immediately accept Margalo and, much to Snowbell's chagrin, welcome her to stay as long as she wants. It's obvious for all to see that Stuart has a crush on the charming and beguiling bird who promises him adventure... but Margalo is hiding a dark secret and is not what she appears to be. When she mysteriously vanishes, the unlikely duo of Stuart and Snowbell set out on long journey to find her unlock the mystery. The furry duo has no idea where they are headed--all Stuart knows is he has to find Falcon's lair and get Margalo back.

Texas Rangers (2001) as Dial Editor
In the 1870s, on the lawless border between Texas and Mexico, the oldest law enforcement agency in America was born: the Texas Rangers, who became an enduring symbol of honor and valor. It was a time when Mexican banditos were raiding the border, Indian tribes were battling for their traditional lands and settlers were pushing west by the thousands lured by the promise of a new life. The rustic country along the Rio Grande River was in chaos as gangs raided farms and family ranches, then took refuge south of the river, beyond the reach of local sheriffs and the US Army. Only the Texas Rangers had a chance to turn the tide and bring justice back to the people. One legendary man, Leander McNelly, is chosen to lead a band of unlikely heroes- many of them young, inexperienced men -in a battle with the renegade outlaws who made the Texas frontier the most dangerous place in America.
