Robert Parish has more than three decades of experience as a writer, producer, director, editor, videographer and voiceover artist. After attending the University of Cincinnati and the American University, Parish began his professional career in 1973, as a freelance on-air contributor to National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.” His work with NPR led him to a position at the Washington (D.C.) Bureau of ABC News.
During his seven years with the network, he worked in both radio and television, covering hundreds of nationally significant news events, including Watergate, Nixon’s resignation and the Iranian Hostage Crisis.
In 1980, Parish left the nation’s capital to accept a public information position with the Washington State Legislature in Olympia, Washington. As the Legislature’s Communications Director, he coordinated media coverage, conducted video training seminars, and composed press releases, radio and TV spots, speeches, newsletters and assorted campaign literature for elected members of the state House and Senate.
Six years later — suffering from an acute case of bureaucratic writer’s cramp — Parish returned to Ohio to resume a career in non-political scriptwriting, copywriting, media training, video production and television news. His first assignment in Cincinnati was writing and producing feature stories for CBS affiliate WCPO-TV.
Working independently since 1989, Parish has acquired a solid reputation as an extraordinarily creative print and electronic communicator. He’s reliable, deadline-sensitive, reasonably priced, often fun to be around, and has an impressive list of local and national corporate clients (Procter & Gamble, Kroger, GE, Sara Lee, etc.)
Along with his corporate marketing and training work, Parish has continued to apply his considerable talents in the field of broadcast journalism. He’s an independent filmmaker with 10 internationally broadcast public television documentaries to his credit. From 2001 to 2011, Parish also produced an award-winning monthly TV series for Cincinnati’s PBS affiliate.
During his career, Parish has won dozens of national awards for his scriptwriting and video production efforts. He’s also written and edited several critically acclaimed books, including one about the mysterious and perplexing “difficulty” of Autism, EMBRACING AUTISM (Jossey-Bass, San Francisco. 2008).
