Design, develop, and produce multimedia applications in local and distributed-network environments for Macintosh, Windows, and Unix platforms. Responsible for all phases of application design and management from conceptualization through delivery, including scheduling and personnel management. Design and implement efficient electronic publishing systems to optimize synchronous management of code development and media preparation among diverse teams in assorted locations. Manage industry-academic projects. Create commercial and prototype multimedia products.


Integrate content-management systems and application-coding process. Extend benefits of object-oriented application design model to leverage a 'just-in-time compile scenario. At runtime, code selectively taps key content database record fields to generate media-reference indices on the fly -- effectively automating media library generation within the code at runtime. These integrated object-oriented production systems map squarely onto emerging requirements for multimedia applications that interface with organic corporate, editorial, and archival databases available over distributed networks and the internet.
