Ronnie Krensel is an award-winning Showrunner, Director and VP of Development. He makes documentaries, comedies and commercials about politics, science, inspiring people and amusing things.
After collecting degrees in biology and film at Uinverstity of Pennsylvania, Ronnie put his science and film knowledge to work, making coffee on film sets in New York and Los Angeles.
He left that grind to become Editor and Director and later Showrunner on an ESPN comedy series and a syndicated pranks show, discovering in the process that a juvenile sense of humor can also pay the bills.
Since then Ronnie helmed comedy, adventure and science shows for TruTV, Discovery, Youtube Red, BBC, ABC, A&E, History, TLC, Animal Planet, Travel, Food HGTV and PBS.
His documentary about inner-city education - "A Matter of Degrees" - won an Emmy Award and Silver Medals at Toronto and Columbus. Since 2016 Ronnie has won 2 Cine Golden Eagles, an Indiefest, 2 Cindy Awards, A Webby Award, along with nominations for Emmy, Streamy and Promax Awards.
His shows have been called “compelling” (NY Times), “effervescent” (Wall Street Journal) and “smart and insightful” (Washington Post).
As a Development Executive Ronnie has created projects for ABC, Food, TLC, ESPN, Discovery, Animal Planet, A&E, Cooking, Bravo UK, CH4 UK and CH5 UK.
Since 2010 he has directed 60+ commercials for brands like Land Rover, Home Depot, Lexus, Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Bank of America. His most recent project is a music video and series of spots with Bill Murray.
Ronnie enjoys talking to strangers from around the world, training dogs and children and pretending to speak French.
