3. Software from the misty past...

I have written software for various large companies (Intuit, Jostens Learning, GoPro, Hewlett-Packard) as well as small companies (MicroTac/Globalink, Gryphon Software.)

I was primary (pro bono) Mac developer for 8 years on the POV-Ray team (1990s), and wrote/published a paper-back tutorial book on the software.

I was author of the shareware Quicktime movie-maker utility "MooVer" (which was awarded 5 mice and licensed to be included in numerous printed books and magazines internationally.)

I also wrote factory automation software for Teleplex Corp., and was co-inventor on 2 patents.
