Tuesday Crew Day: Diana Sole-Walko

West Virginia film Office


Where are you from, where are you located now, and what are your ties to WV?



I grew up on a dirt road farm along Wylie Ridge, which snakes along the hilltops between Weirton and New Cumberland, WV.  My family roots run deep in West Virginia -- I have ancestors who carved out a life in these mountains and fought in the French and Indian War, which is long before the formation of our state.  I am a student of West Virginia history.  When I was in high school, I was a member of a music group that performed Mountain Heritage music, and we sometimes performed with Patrick Ward Gainer, a folklorist/musician who was passionate about recording the musical heritage of our state. Years later, I started producing documentaries about our state.


And there’s so many more I’d like to do! I am blessed to have crafted a career doing what I love, and living where I choose.
