I have been a major factor in the design, development, and market integration of the Primatte chromakeyer plug-in and the O-gi visual effects plug-in for the last fourteen years. Primatte has been a major tool in the visual effects industry and has been used in almost every major motion picture, television show, music video, commercial and other effects laden feature during that period. It was nominated for a Scientific and Technical Achievement award in 2009. In the support of these products I have had the opportunity to work on several features during the course of training users in the operation of the products.
I have extensive experience in designing products for artists on the Macintosh, Windows, SGI, Motif and Presentation Manager Graphical User Interfaces. I have attended SIGCHI conferences and have made a major endeavor to study human interaction with both hardware and software.
Most of my experience is in the computer graphics arena including video, motion picture post-production, graphic design, pre-press and paint and image editing tools.
I have a good deal of experience in dealing with corporate investors and potential customers. I have done extensive traveling around the world to work with OEM customers to determine their needs and design products to solve their problems. I have been involved with many contract negotiations.
Working as I have in small companies, I have gained extensive experience working with Sales and Marketing Departments to identify market opportunities. I have conducted market reviews of the SIGGRAPH, COMDEX, NAB, IBC, InterBEE, Multimedia/CD-ROM and SIGCHI shows for the last eighteen years. I feel that my experience as both a former hardware and software engineer gives me a well rounded background for the microcomputer industry.
