My undergraduate work was in Design with a minor in Japanese and Chinese Linguistics. I pursued Electrical Engineering before that, but alas, could never escape the death grip of computers and so in spite of my failure to grasp Laplace Transforms, computers and technology form the staple of my business undertakings.
As for philosophy, I believe that people are fundamentally good, but inherently pursue their own self interest, so the ideal political system has checks and balances that recognize that neither government nor her institutions, nor corporations nor their board or employees, are any better than each individual, and certainly not better than the whole. So, I accept that we're free only by obeying and
honoring the law of the land. I hold fast that politics and economics are inseparable and I tend to go with political ideas that limit restraint on the market forces and trust the market more than the frequently compromised individuals that try to manipulate it.
In terms of investing, I'm not too sophisticated, but patient and methodical and hope that my observations are accurate enough to put my wealth in growing concerns rather than shrinking ones. I look at a companies products, ideas, culture, and leadership first, and if those qualities are sound, then I look at the numbers. I believe technical analysis (looking for numbered patterns) to be fundamentally flawed except where they can track a direct corollary and take into account externalities.
Companies I like: AAPL, WFC, AMEX, ADBE, GOOG, NFLX, AMZN... mostly tech because that's where I see future growth.
Those things aside, however, my family is my MOST IMPORTANT undertaking and I've had to suppress my love for photography, film, and other forms of art. Fortunately my children are taking an interest in those things, so it's not panning out too bad for ol' dad.

About Geotopia Geotopia International was formed in 1997 to provide localization services for companies just like yours. We specialize in turn-key product localization for Mac, Windows, and cross platform products as well as consumer electronic products. We understand that each product and each company's
needs vary, so we offer custom localization services which can include software internationalization, quality assurance, installer scripting, and any other tasks necessary to customize your product for the various international markets. Our core staff consists of localization/internationalization engineers and project managers, each with more than five years of real world experience shipping international products for companies such as Apple Computer, Adobe Systems, Palm Computing, 3COM, and Motorola. Combined, we have over a quarter century of experience localizing consumer and enterprise products and are seasoned in all aspects of localization, ranging from planning and project management to translation, programming, and final software releases. In addition, we have in-house expertise for localizing the documentation, packaging, and other materials that complement your core product. Our Approach What makes us different from other localization and translation companies is our no-frills, practical approach to working with our clients - getting you what you need, quickly and within budget, without letting our internal processes interfere with your product plans. We've had tremendous success helping clients prepare their products for international markets, sometimes under extremely tight time constraints. Product localization can have as many facets and details as the original domestic product upon which it is based, but we believe that we can make it simple for our clients - as simple as a minor revision to the original product. We can release your internal engineering resources of localization concerns, enabling them to focus on core development projects. We strive to establish an ongoing partnership with each of our clients and encourage your return business by providing long term solutions that contribute to your overall business strategies. Drawing upon our years of experience, we can provide you with a step-by-step plan based upon your specific needs to bring forth a world-class, fully localized product. Although we'll never suggest any unnecessary services, neither will we ever sacrifice quality by cutting corners or omitting crucial steps. To be certain that our proposal fits your needs, we take the time necessary to gain an in-depth understanding of your product and your goals for that product. This involves a detailed analysis of the nature and composition of each product we localize. We can then help you to understand the estimated costs, schedule, and possible contingencies. Although we have an abundance of linguistic talent in our core engineering group (our members speak English, French, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, and Thai), we are engineers by profession and leave the translation to qualified language specialists. From our large pool of contract translators, we select the best possible candidates qualified for the individual translation assignment. By using translators with expertise in certain fields, we ensure that they clearly understand the specific nature of your product and the corresponding computing platform.
