About me & my work:

In 1972 I co-founded and managed Red Ink Productions in NYC. Clients included galleries, museums, and leading edge designers. RI was a project management service for print centric product.

In 1999 I co-founded Printed paperback books in classroom editions of 30 for student writing. Had 2500 users spread in every state in the USA. Went belly up when the dotcom bust dried up funding.

I was also part of the co-founding team at Grow Networks. My role was setting up the production systems for individualized student reports in quantities of 100's of thousands. Grow Network was purchased by McGraw Hill.

2000 to 2007: Adjunct and then acting Assistant Department Chair of the Communication Design Department at Parsons New School.

2008 Retired
