How long have you been working in digital media?

20 years, off and on.

How would you define your role in digital media?

Currently: writer/reporter on digital media news, trends and technologies. Soon: programmer and content creator.

How did you find yourself working in digital media?

Began when I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science (with an AI and Machine Learning focus) from UC Irvine, then I slowly transitioned from doing AI research to content creation, writing about digital media, etc. Still evolving.

Would you be interested in presenting a talk one day?

Perhaps one day, but right now, I am mainly in learning mode.


Former AI researcher, became Tech Writer and book author; now learning new languages, plan to return to programming & do app development. Eager to learn and meet new folks in the LA digital media community, and perhaps join an existing creative team.
