Oak View Growth Services
This site (currently version 3) is mostly for my own Amusement, but also so that i get a chance to learn/practice the web develoment tools and technologies used on projects I manage. For this site, I pasted in a handful of JavaScripts, created all the images, copy, and information design, and I played around a bit with Flash and QuickTime. Those who have seen the previous version of will notice the significant reuse of content in the strategy section of this site.

Projects with MindSphere of Point Reyes
Since 1997, I have served in a variety of website production roles for this small, high-end firm in Point Reyes, California. For, I helped determine target audiences, and specific segment messages. I managed development tasks and tracked progress against a production matrix.

This Intranet Project for a global investment bank involved building templates to be implemented in a Cold Fusion solution. As primary client contact, I worked with the MindSphere production team to deliver a daily news and information intranet template.

The part of HP that makes servers, telecommunication hardware, and a wide range of business solutions contracted with MindSphere to develop a Web Publishing System using Informix and Domain XE. I served as content manager for a handful of group and division-level sites. HP has since standarized on a less vivid interface.

In a Previous Life
Before rolling up my sleves and getting my hands dirty in all the production work involved in creating IP distributed products, I was the CFO for a small company called vivid studios. My three year history with that firm (recently acquired for the third time in as many years) began during the CD ROM era and worked through some major industry milestones as we began building the first big corporate internet sites for companies such as Sony, Microsoft, and Bell Atlantic. At Vivid, I was in charge of all accounting and operations, human resource development, and project management reporting infrastructure. I also served on the executive committee and played an integral role in developing strategy for the firm. In 1997, I quit and began working as a free agent. I continue to be interested in learning about new business projects.
