I wear two general hats on what most would consider polar opposite sides of the spectrum:

I run an engineering consultancy with expertise in genetics related engineering (microscopy, epifluorescence, microinjection, micromanipulation, transgenics, stem cell research, in-vitro fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injection, electroporation, animal models (including: C. elegans, drosophila, Xenopus, zebra fish, Saccharomyces cerevisiae)), signal processing, imaging, communications, experimental design, custom laboratory equipment. Experience includes work with several recent Nobel prize winners in physiology/medicine and chemistry.

I also run an entertainment management and production company and consult for a variety of entities in the entertainment industry drawing on 17+ years of experience in the areas of distribution, finance, production, representation, and marketing for publishing, television, and filmed entertainment.

I also do a lot of volunteer work for The Johns Hopkins University including, but not limited to, work with the Alumni Council, the Society of Engineering Alumni, the Los Angeles Chapter of the Alumni Association, the National Alumni Schools Committee, and the team managing several of Hopkins' social media accounts in Twitter, Facebook and other platforms. When available I also teach courses for and support their Film and Media Studies program.

My interests include: communication theory, information theory, genetics, evolutionary theory, mathematics (particularly abstract algebra and analysis), corporate finance, higher education, production and operations management, and digital distribution.
