I could say I’ve been in the media and entertainment business since 1976 when I got my first paper route, but in reality the odyssey began in the mid-1980s. Not one for Chinese proverbs, I believe I’ve been blessed to live in interesting times. I began my career as an editor just as documentary post production at WGBH was moving from film to video, and I stuck around long enough to play a very active role in the transition to non-linear post.
Since then I’ve taught, written about, and founded companies in the media creation space. I’ve tried to escape on numerous occasions, but I keep coming back. I can’t help it. I love this stuff, and I love helping others to make more of this stuff.
Today I hang my hat at Avid where I’m the Director of Production Management for Interplay Production. I love my job, and for that reason I don’t comment on things Avid has paid for the exclusive right to access. I don’t discuss competitors’ products and strategies, but I think there’s still a lot for me to share publicly. Just to be perfectly clear… the opinions shared here are mine and only mine. They do not represent Avid’s positions. Do not make purchasing decisions or investments based on my opinions. I’m not at liberty to disclose stuff you need to know to make those decisions.
This blog is about nothing in particular. My plan is for it to remain an eclectic mix… kind of like a mental iPod on shuffle.
