Welcome to cornettmedia.com,
Website of Dean & Nina Cornett
Together, the Cornetts have lived in a wide range of locations across the United States, stretching from the farthest northwest state of Alaska to the farthest southeast - Florida. They now split their time between Kentucky and Alaska.
After a successful career as a civilian executive in the United States Navy, Nina now writes for publication, from novels to op-ed pieces to documentary scripts. She is presently at work on a memoir, and is developing a concept for a mystery novel set in Alaska. Nina is also keeping a log of the Cornett's efforts to bring attention to timber theft in Kentucky, which could form the germ of a future book.
Nina also is a member of the Kentucky Supreme Court's Access to Justice Commission. She welcomes input from Kentuckians concerning their experiences with the justice system and their suggestions for improving access to it.
Dean, with Nina’s script-writing and research contributions, creates video-documentaries that have aired on cable and PBS stations. The subjects vary from the return of black bears to Kentucky through the history and demise of the American chestnut to the viciousness of the Civil War in the area of Kentucky in which Dean grew up.
They devote considerable effort to environmental projects and to projects to improve their home areas. They played a pivotal role in bringing medical evacuation helicopter services to their area of eastern Kentucky. In Alaska, they devote their time to preserving the land and animals, particularly grizzly bears on the Kenai Peninsula.
To catch the flavor of their divergent homes and to get an idea of their work, explore this website for photos, short clips of some of their videodocumentaries, and excerpts from Nina’s writing. Visit Nina’s blog page for additional light on them and their activities.
