WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PROJECT FROM THE PAST AND WHY

Some of my favorite projects in the past have been the WorldStage DevCon events that we have put on for our clients and industry partners. Every couple of years we find some interesting new technologies that have the potential to help transform the live events landscape that we all work in and we put them on display and talk openly about their capabilities and possibilities. The Media Server focused DevCon events that we put together in Tustin in 2009 and New York in early 2010 stick in my mind because we had to come up with interesting ways to show off media server capabilities like mapping, tracking, and 3D. A very fun and creative process.

FAVORITE SHOW VENUE

Carnegie Hall

WHY COWORKERS ARE GREAT

The culture of the company is to challenge yourself everyday and continue to look outside the box for interesting solutions or possibilities. This freedom/quest brings out the best in my coworkers as we continue to reinvent what’s possible every day.
