Okay, if you insist.
According to reliable witnesses (Mom and Dad), I was verbal from the moment I was born. Since then, my vocabulary has somewhat improved.
For twenty years I was a writer and director of corporate documentaries, copywriter for advertising and project proposals, and a speechwriter for senior executives in technology, communications, and consumer products. That expanded into work as a scriptwriter and software developer for multimedia events and computer games.
Most recently I was a tenured Professor in the Department of Digital Arts at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, teaching interactive design and programming. Today I am swimming full-time in the world of fiction.
I attended Syracuse University (B.A., Magna Cum Laude, International Relations, with unofficial minors in broadcasting and physics) and the University of Southern California (M.F.A., Cinema, with an emphasis in experimental animation).
Ex pigritia ingenium.
