Dale Farmer was born and raised in Butler County, Ohio and as a young adult moved to Nashville, TN to pursue a music career. After a few years of performing in Nashville, Dale moved back to Ohio and followed his second passion as an Emergency Response Coordinator for The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. When not responding to hazardous chemical spills, Dale produced videos for the US EPA, Michigan Department of Health and other government and nonprofit entities. Dale is also a skilled multi-instrumentalist who plays in several bands in the Greater Cincinnati Area and has engineered and produced several music albums. He is now making movies full time.
Dale’s passion is storytelling, so corporate scripts eventually gave way to screenplays. Dale grew up absorbing the stories and mountain music traditions of his grandparents. Heeding the advice to “write what you know,” Dale has created the story and the film, The Mountain Minor, based on his family’s own experiences migrating from the Appalachian mountains.
