I have kind of a goofy background in all sorts of things, which means you can ask me about pretty much anything in the world of web series and technology. I started my career in television working on a variety of shows in Hollywood but ended up in technology. I’ve written a number of books on (at the time) cutting edge technologies like Java, MySQL, cloud computing, and RESTFul APIs. I started four companies and sold one to Dell in 2013. The latest company is called Seeka TV. Seeka TV is an online distribution platform focused squarely on curated web series. In addition, I’m the Executive Director of the Minnesota WebFest.
Outside the “9-5”, I play many different hats in filmmaking: writer, producer, director, editor, DIT (my production house is Imaginary Productions)
Areas in which I might be good for chatting:
- Business models for online content
- Creator technologies (pre-prod, prod, post-prod, distribution)
- Web series: what works, what doesn’t
- Seeka TV
