Town Hall: Andrew Och – Television and Multimedia Producer
April 21, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Andy Och, an award-winning television and multimedia producer, has traveled the world with his pen, paper, and camera. A University of Maryland graduate, Och began his production career in music, later adding his camera to the mix. A storyteller from a young age, he will go anywhere in the world for knowledge, greater understanding, and a good story. Och is a true documentarian of life. For C-SPAN’s First Ladies: Influence and Image, he traveled widely to tell the stories of every First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS), from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama.
Through this unique and historical journey to learn about first ladies before, during, and after their time in the White House, Och has completed one of the most comprehensive collections of material and information about this unique sorority of women. Known as “The First Ladies Man,” Och brings a fresh look to an oft-overlooked subject in American history. Och cannot name a favorite FLOTUS, noting that “…their separate contributions need to be looked at as a whole because together they’ve helped sew the unique fabric of our country, and for that we’re extremely lucky.”
