Some may say that my career spans varied fields and that is true enough, however I would add that I have a multi-discipline approach that is necessary in the modern age. As Robert Heinlein once said, “Specialization is for insects”.

My pioneering work in Transmedia is chronicled in the University level textbook: Legend-Tripping Online: Supernatural Folklore and the Search for Ong’s Hat – University Press of Mississippi (May 17, 2011)

I have also been the executive producer and originator of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival Podcast the first film festival to podcast from the event, the executive producer/director of the Los Angles Film Festival podcast and the ABA All Star Game podcast.
