About filmmaker Bob Dolgan

Bob Dolgan created his first film, "Monty and Rose," as a volunteer Piping Plover monitor in Chicago in 2019. His efforts have resulted in the creation of Illinois Piping Plover Day, as declared by Governor J.B. Pritzker, and national and local media attention for the plovers. This year the Chicago Park District expanded the natural area at Montrose Beach by 3.1 acres to accommodate the Piping Plovers and several other bird and plant species. Bob is an Ambassador for the American Bird Conservancy and a past Board Member of the Chicago Ornithological Society. He coordinates the annual Christmas Bird Count and serves as a volunteer for a number of other bird conservation initiatives. He and his wife, Kristin, reside in the Jefferson Park neighborhood with their two daughters. CLICK HERE to read more about the “Monty and Rose” films.

About Video and Content Producer Mike Rivera

Visual storytelling has always been a passion of mine, which I have exercised for over a decade supported by my background in journalism. I have absorbed the importance of reaching digital and print audiences through the channels of large markets, such as ABC News The Daily News, and The Daily Mail. The success of these previous endeavors led me to my relocation to Chicago while working for the Chicago Tribune as both a photographer and editor. My latest endeavors have brought me into a new career path of both commercial and editorial based work across the country. I enjoy collaborating alongside videographers, photographers, writers, designers, project managers in hopes of creating unique content while still preserving the integrity and service of clients.
