I live in San Diego. I am married to Stephanie Cunningham. We live in a condo we own in Little Italy. I play soccer, write, take photos and work a lot.
I am one of four founders of Red Door Interactive, an interactive agency in San Diego specializing in Internet Presence Management for mid-sized companies, divisions of large corporations and venture-backed start-ups. I was the Director of Information Strategy there. I kept an eye on technology and let our clients know how they would leverage it for their benefit.
For four years I was a board member for Mama's Kitchen, a non-profit that feeds people living with AIDS here in San Diego. I am back on the board, after a year's hiatus.
I am also on the board of PWI, Partnerships with Industry, a non-profit social venture that puts people with development disabilities at job sites around San Diego. They also fulfill manufacturing contract services for local industry.
I graduated from Ohio State University with a combined degree in Creative Writing and Photography. I did well there. I also went to school in Wales for two years taking IB courses and learning photography at the United World College of the Atlantic. I spent a year in Sweden, learning the language, studying psychology and economic history at Uppsala University.
Before starting Red Door in February of 2002 I was a Technology Director at the McQuerter Group, a PR firm in San Diego. Before that I was a Software Engineer at PBJ, a dot-com incubator and web development firm in Los Angeles. Before that I was a kid in college with ambitions to make movies and write books. Having taken my talents to the web instead I did business type things.
I co-founded the Emerging Wireless Special Interest Group at the San Diego Telecom Council. I also created and maintain the site Airshare.org which tells people how they can enjoy wireless internet access. I was also famous for a time for a site called Spoke-and-Axle.com which helped people cope with their own popularity by getting them free hosting from their peers. Every once in a while, you may see me speak on a panel at a convention. You may also read some of my articles on Internet technology in such magazines as iMedia Connection, Darwin and eBizq.
Being from New Mexico by way of Cleveland, I have an affinity for the Browns, the Indians and the Force. I also like road trips in my Mini.
