Work Philosophy

Accurate information is the most important value behind all that we cherish in our modern lives, and it is the awesome force behind the explosion of the data driven Internet, my career industry. As an advocate of the "scientific method", I know that with strong data, creative thinking, and fast iterations to market, many business challenges can turn into lucrative opportunities.

As a 20-year veteran of the Internet, with experience in product development, marketing, design, engineering, and monetization, I am always ready to bring my high standard of excellence and execution to any organization.

I look forward to hearing about any senior roles in Southern California that are befitting of my background and experience, so please feel free to contact me in this regard.

I have many interests but this quarter I am featuring my recent oil painting efforts.

My most recent original oil paintings in 12x12, 12x16, and 11x14.

In April of 2018 I began studying the photo-realistic technique of my favorite contemporary landscape artist, Michael James Smith.

The paintings below are my first attempts, and represent my efforts to either copy MJS paintings, to follow condensed 5 minute MJS tutorials, or to paint from an MJS reference photo.

I want to thank Michael James Smith for sharing his technique with the world, and I encourage anyone interested in oil painting to visit his site and explore his online art school.

You can't say I didn't give it a good try.
