From 1975 through 1983, I
built and operated a Los Angeles based mobile video and audio recording studio
(On The Spot Recording) and a silk-screen print business focused on entertainment
business merchandising (T-shirt Graphics). Since 1983, as sales and marketing
professional, I have created and applied computer based hardware and software
solutions to real world business challenges. In 1993 I added Windows based computers
to my Apple II and Mac computer knowledge. My marketing experience includes numerous
print collateral pieces, hundreds of national print advertisement layouts, both
television and radio spot production, and planning print and electronic media
buys. From behind and in front of the camera I have produced, shot, edited, and
appeared in hundreds of hours of industrial and Youtube videos. Supervising the
design and deployment of customer service programs and direct response marketing
matrixes required my use relational databases and high level programmers. My
working understanding of the INTERNET is a strong asset. My Internet sales, planning,
development and deployment experience includes over 200 web sites since Feb..
1995. I have the desire and discipline it takes to work without close supervision
and produce great results. My online experience began with direct Telnet/BBS
systems from 1988, about six years before there was a World Wide Web. My online
history includes thousands of hands on hours with telnet, html, FTP, and search
engine placement. For some historical perspective, please consider a piece I
authored in Feb.. '95 titled "Why the
Internet Is Here To Stay" by accessing
