multimedia experience began at Magnet Interactive as one of the company's
first CD-ROM programmers, eventually moving through multiple departments
and reorganization until attaining a position where I could help affect
business and development decisions throughout the company and it's offices.
My time at a world-class interactive agency provided me with extensive
experience in both developing and directing award-winning newmedia projects
for CD-ROM, dynamic web, kiosk, and streaming media formats for a variety
of Fortune 500 clients. I am considered by my peers a leader in the
field of user-facing technologies, with particular attention paid to
issues of quality, cross-platform compatibility, usability and the appropriate
matching of technology with business goals and a target user base.
