Since assuming the role of president of National Geographic Television, Michael Rosenfeld has doubled production and developed international coproduction partnerships for NGT. With a background in producing and journalism, and many years under his belt shaping the National Geographic Explorer series, here Rosenfeld teaches us a thing or two about the importance of proper footwear when climbing a volcano.

1. As a novice producer, I once wore the wrong shoes to a shoot on a volcano. The bottoms melted and I found myself standing in my socks on a scorching bed of volcanic rock.

2. Our family dog , Zoser, was rescued as an orphaned puppy by a National Geographic film crew working at the step pyramid in Saqqara, Egypt.

3. Spike Lee was in my class in film school. I dropped out, while he kept going. There may be a lesson in that!
