Welcome! You've reached the personal
section of the TLC PRODUCTIONS portfolio website and you probably
arrived here because you were curious what might happen if you clicked
on my photo. That's great--we have curiosity in common. I like working
with people who are curious about the world around them.
One of the things that distinguishes
me is an unmistakable intellectual curiosity.
[I'm one of those
people who goes to look up something like "ukiyoe"
(a style of Japanese poetry) and gets temporarily waylaid reading
the definition of "ulotrichy"
(having hair that is "crisply curly").]
It's that same curiosity drives
me to explore other places, other lands (See TRAVELOGUE.) In fact,
I have a little postcard on my desk that says simply,
"If there's an experience
in front of you, have it."
Of course, that desire for new knowledge
also leads me to order things in restaurants like pickled squid and deep-fried
watermelon rind, which may or may not be an experience I want to repeat!
In a business context, my curiosity
means I bring a wide spectrum of experience to the table--along
with an ability to distinguish what's good and what works.
It also means I'm likely
to come up with an approach that hasn't been previously explored.
If we work together, you'll find I'm
analytical, and perceptive and bring a mature, intuitive understanding
to the task at hand. I see things somewhat differently than
most folks, and tend to score very high in what's called inductive reasoning
when time comes to examine skills on standardized tests.
Why should you
care about that? Well, it's a skill that's helpful in conceptualizing
and generating new media, especially interactive media.
What it means is I'm very good at moving from the specific to
the general. As a high-classification person, I take information
in from many sources, process it quickly, and can pull together
thought/fact/idea into a workable solution.
What's more, I love to solve problems
and figure things out.
I'm not the most
logical person though--my solutions do not follow a linear
train of logic, so I may have a hard time explaining how I got
to the solution offered. And I'll rely on a good technical person
to help me flesh out the details.
If you're interested in working with me, you
should know I've got good stamina and persistence, and, in
addition to being curious, you'll find I'm opinionated, clever,
and sometimes pretty funny. (Click HERE

Want to get to know me better?
Everyone is welcome to explore all of the other parts of the TLC porfolio web site, but in order
delve further into this personal section, you'll need a password.
Before I give you
the magic key, you'll have to send me an e-mail telling me a
little about yourself and why you're interested in finding out more.
Looking forward to hearing
