I was the senior systems engineer for the Center for Wireless and Population Health Systems (CWPHS) at University of California, San Diego where I developed and evaluated wireless applications for collecting and analyzing data in the areas of physical activity, energy balance, and nutrition as well as clinical applications. After retiring from UCSD in 2018, I joined the faculty of the College of the Desert in Palm Desert, CA where I teach a hands-on computer engineering workshop and a summer STEM program for middle and high school students. I am also is a member of the American Red Cross Disaster Services Technology and Situational Awareness teams.
Before relocating to San Diego in 2003, I was a founding member of LiveSky Solutions, a wireless developer in Boston.
I was instrumental in the development of interactive multimedia and new media technologies. While in last year of college, I founded Telematic Systems, a pioneering award-wining videodisc development firm commercializing technologies developed at MIT’s Media Lab for clients such as AT&T, Digital Equipment Corp, Ford, and General Motors. In 1987, as Vice President for Production at Interactive Media Communications, I lead the firm’s development and production teams in the creations of interactive multimedia training programs in the area of Industrial Health and Safety.
Throughout the 1990’s, as an independent new media producer, I collaborated with design firms, Internet companies, and film/video studios to create memorable, large-scale experiences which integrate computer, video and Internet technologies. My work has been installed at the California Science Center, National Scouting Museum, Liberty Science Center, Tennessee Valley Authority, Boston Museum of Science, Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of American History, Atlanta’s SciTrek museum, and at SportsLab.
