Zenith Insurance Inc.
I completed a
one-year stint at TheZenith, beginning in Medical Management,
then as a Project Manager, reporting to the Director of Strategic Projects in Corporate
Communications, and later doing project-specific work for Medical Management, Claims and Claims Legal.
I worked on a variety of technical projects relating to the company's public Website and
I worked at
e-commerce company Escalate as their Web Marketing Manager. Located in Redwood Shores, CA,
Escalate provides end-to-end sell-side e-commerce solutions for branded manufacturers,
resellers, retailers, etailers, and content/portal Web sites.
Moonstone Interactive, Inc. was formed by Rachel Rubin and Seth
Restaino as a multimedia production consulting group. I began as their webmaster
and as a multimedia programmer. I then became focused on website development and
project management. Moonstone specializes in all aspects of
multimedia design and production for on-line and CD-ROM projects using the
latest technologies and the careful application of many combined years of experience.
I learned mTropolis programming from Seth and Rachel through the
where I have also studied Information Design and QuickTime VR Production.
I co-founded Vitadata corporation in late 1994 with Dr. Lee Jensen.
His idea was to create a central Internet site to serve the biotechnology
industry with product , service and employment information. At the time,
the WWW was not even commercial, Netiquette reigned supreme, and we
apologetically asked advertisers and sponsors to help support the project.
Lee's brainchild has since grown to become
Bio Online, the biggest and
oldest commercial site serving the life sciences industries. We now
receive over three million 'hits' each month. Bio Online is
advertising supported. Though I helped to produce and maintain the site, it was
a gargantuan team effort.
Vitadata provides WWW site design and hosting, multimedia production services,
and the infrastructure to support the Bio Online service. My
role was, at various times, Production, Sales and/or Accounts Manager:
sales, marketing, technical support, design
and project management. We worked with Sun Microsystems, Silicon
Graphics, Apple Macintosh and Windows platforms.
