Some Things About Me
Some of the things I have achieved as an inventor, creator, product manager, CEO, CTO, writer, and artist include: Playing a role in establishing and evangelizing standards and practices such as PDF, DVD, Podcasting, ARG, and digital video. I am an inventor. I have designed apps for iPhone, iPad, and other mobile platforms   . I am a published author of screenplays, white papers, technology, sci-fi, marketing, and gaming books.
My pioneering work in Transmedia is chronicled in the University level textbook: Legend-Tripping Online: Supernatural Folklore and the Search for Ong’s Hat – University Press of Mississippi (May 17, 2011)
I have staged and orchestrated very successful, large-scale, mass media Alternate Reality Game/Transmedia style projects since the mid-80s, utilizing print, phone, fax, email, Internet, advertising, video, film, audio, CDROM, DVD, and on-demand media. My work has been featured on CBS Marketwatch, CNN, CNET TV, Kiplinger’s, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, NHK, MTV, PBS, LA Times, Clear Channel Radio (Art Bell), BBC, MSNBC, Boing-Boing, VICE, Slate, Gizmodo, and many other weekly newspapers, trade magazines, local and regional radio, and television.
My transmedia work, Ong’s Hat, is known throughout the gaming industry and academia as the first, proto-ARG. (Alternate Reality Game). This work was profiled in Games(TM) magazine, as well as Inside a Mind, Thoughty2, That Chapter, Slate, Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know, TOOWi, and Gizmodo. The Incunabula Papers CDROM was recently included by invitation in the BNF (Bibliothèque nationale de France) digital art collection.
