I am currently the CEO of Reading Kingdom which develops innovative online and offline products that teach reading, writing and comprehension.

 

Wildform-oval-64

Prior to Reading Kingdom, I founded Wildform, an award-winning video, presentation and animation software company that created dozens of consumer products for Windows & Mac in the US, Asia and Europe as well as cloud-based software. Wildform created Flix, the first Flash video encoding software which revolutionized the web video landscape. I sold the Flix product line to On2 Technologies which was subsequently acquired by Google. As part of On2's acquisition by Google, Wildform, working with Google, released the first video encoder that used the new WebM video format. In addition to creating consumer software, I also licensed Wildform's technology to leading companies such as Sony, Quark, Autodesk, and Adobe.

 

tropia-oval-64

Prior to Wildform I created and sold Tropia.com, one of the first music and band sites. At Tropia we created the first e-commerce enabled streaming radio station and made the first and only free online distribution license for a Bob Marley song (“Splish For My Splash”).
