to my site, my latest attempt to coagulate the rambling musings
of my four decades on this planet. I was encouraged to do this by
some friends on the avant garde of the blogging phenomonon. Check
Boosman's and Joichi
Ito's blog sites for a better example of how this is supposed
to be done. For more on blogging in general go to blogger.com
in mind that this site is created by a liberal arts guy who never used a computer
in college and has never written one line of code. Still, I share their fondness
for all things technological and all things that hold promise for a better future.
I am a 38 year old serial entrepeneur based in central North
Carolina. I was born in Oklahoma and grew up in Texas and North Carolina as the
son of an Air Force lieutenant colonel. I am married to Vanessa,
whom I met in a small town in Italy near Venice. The fact that I was able to lure
her here from her home in the foothills of the Dolomites is the truest testament
to my sales skills.
am currently working with a team of engineers and deep thinkers
for whom I have tremendous respect. We have worked together on and
off for more than a decade. In an economic climate where everyone
is running for cover we have made great progress in both the wireless
document and data fields and are continuing our work in 3D simulation.

to founding AirEight, I was the CEO of 3dvillage, Inc. a 3D online multimedia
company I founded in 1999 that was acquired by Periscope3 in September, 2002.
Before that, I was General Manager and VP of Sales for Virtus, where I worked
for nearly a decade. In addition to these duties over the years, I spoke at key
industry conferences such as Comdex, MacWorld, Windows World-London, NCGA, Web3D
and the Meckler Virtual Reality conferences. I also spearheaded the effort to
use 3D visualization technologies to create virtual environments for movies such
as Warner Brothers' feature Fearless, a John Hay film titled The Steal,
as well as during the pre-production phase of Brian dePalma's blockbuster Mission:
Impossible. With David Smith, I co-wrote an industry-leading book
on VRML technologies that was widely distributed and translated into three foreign
languages in 1995. I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel
will be contributing to the links on the left when the muse grabs me or I come
across something sufficiently noteworthy or ludicrous.
