For the next decade he was mentored by world class editor/filmmakers like Gordon Quinn, Steve James, Jerry Blumenthal, Leslie Simmer, and David E. Simpson.
To date, Wickenden has contributed in significant ways to six KTQ projects: Almost There, The Trials of Muhammad Ali, The Interrupters, At the Death House Door, Milking the Rhino, and The New Americans.
