I worked for 40 years as a mainframe software developer for an agency of the Federal Government. Then, in 2004, I retired and returned to the same agency as a contractor, doing the same work. In 2009, I got fired for saying uncomplimentary things about the bosses in a public venue. It was a bracing experience. I'm an amateur investor of long experience, managing my own investments, full-time. Going into 2012, I own GOOG, COP, DE, C, OIH, ATPG and GLD. I'm 2% cash. I have a lot of free time.

Filmmaker, tech junkie, info sponge. On the cutting edge of DIY film distribution, I'm into helping bring about a new model of film distribution in the digital age. As DVD sales continue to decline and video stores continue to close, it's important to find new ways to get our films seen. I'm excited about new platforms like YouTube Rentals that will let filmmakers easily eliminate many layers of middlemen that historically have existed between content creators and consumers. It's an interesting time to be in the film production and distribution business.
