About Robert Parish                                                                                              

Award-winning Cincinnati, Ohio based filmmaker Robert Parish has spent the past decade writing and producing public television documentary and educational films that have touched the hearts and minds of millions of viewers in the United States and abroad.

Parish has focused his lens on shattering the myths of Autism Spectrum Disorders (The COME BACK JACK series), and empowering those jarred by tragedy to restore and rebuild their lives (The RECLAIMING HOPE, REDISCOVERING RESILIENCE series).

In 2002, Parish met Lewis G. Zirkle, Jr., M.D., an extraordinary physician who has devoted much of his life to healing the less fortunate in developing countries. Parish was immediately impressed by Dr. Zirkle’s commitment and began an artistic collaboration that has resulted in an hour-long documentary entitled HEALING THE GRAY PEOPLE.
