Seeing the Forest AND the Trees

Technology for a better world.

About March 21, 2008

I strive to see the forest and the trees. I graduated from Harvard College, class of 1978, in economics. With over twenty years of experience in software development, I have worked on a variety of software systems. I seek ways to use technology to have a positive impact on our world.

I live in Portland, Oregon and am a volunteer community producer for Portland Community Media. If you have ideas for a digital story or a film that will benefit a non-profit organization, a social business or community in general, please contact me.

I grew up in the Boston area, am a die-hard Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins fan. Since moving my family to Portland in 1996, I now also support the TrailBlazers and the Seattle Mariners.
