SHORT BIO

Kevin Cloud Brechner has over 2500 film, television, theatre, radio and music production credits, mostly as a director, writer, and/or producer. The genres have included dramas, comedies, live music concerts, talk shows, documentaries, pilots, sports, events, PSAs, commercials, and industrials. He has had experience directing single camera film and video, multi-camera television, and many live shows. He was a production manager overseeing two cable stations. He has experience in radio as a disc jockey, voice-over announcer, and in station management.

He also has a diverse background in both the arts and sciences. He has a doctorate in experimental social psychology from Arizona State University. His specialties are the experimental analysis of social traps including the study of environmental resource management problems like species extinction, pollution, and over-harvesting, and the study of the flow of energy through human systems. In addition, he worked on a new methodology for animal experimentation called laboratory ethology, which combines the rigor of laboratory research, with generality of field observation.

He has published in many professional journals and has taught at several universities. For seven years he worked transporting works of fine art for major museums and galleries. His own artwork has been displayed in many group shows. He spent three summers working for the Smithsonian Institution on archaeological excavations and surveys.
