I hold the first PhD in Digital Media, which I designed at the University of Washington (just before the Web was invented), and an MFA in Directing from the University of Texas. I've been a theatre prof, then a 9-year Microsoft veteran, then a corporate Senior VP & CIO, tech-startup CEO, IP/patent technical expert and now founder. I'm an award-winning writer, designer, director, frequent public speaker, and an inventor, with 15 patents to date. I'm equally comfortable in the arts, technology, academia and business worlds - and of course the great outdoors.
