How did Colin Campbell, an art school grad who designs landscapes for a Baltimore video game firm, end up hosting Oregon Public Broadcasting’s archeology show Time Team America? As he tells The Baltimore Sun: “I worked as a resident assistant, and before that as a desk monitor for a freshman dorm. And the guy who employed me in both of those roles eventually left MICA and went on to work in Portland, Ore. And the show’s producers … happened to call him asking if he knew anyone who would be good for this show, and he gave them my name. I actually like that story a lot, because it goes back to me working a $5-an-hour job and that sort of cascading into this event.”
