Questions and AnswersWhat will you say about the work you've done at the end of your career?
I strove to do work that reflects the passion I have for entertainment, technology, design and art. Work that has a galvanizing and positive effect on the world. (I'm striving in any case.)Where do you go for inspiration?
Contemporary museums, the Internet, Tokyo at night, Kyoto farmhouses, Paris, the backyard, my wife, my daughter.How do you build resilience into your work & company?
I find that a "dynamic Zen" mentality works. Be in the present and do good work. Then the future takes care of itself.What keeps you up at night?
Thinking too much about what might happen or what should happen (future scenarios) rather than accepting things as they are and being in the present. If you can do something, then do it. Now. Otherwise go to sleep.What gets you up in the morning?
A quick run and a cup of coffee (switched recently to decaf). My daughter's laughing voice also motivates me.How is your work cross-cultural?
I work a lot with clients in Japan as well as the US. Bridging Asian and Western cultures across everything from next gen technology to the future of TV and film.
I am an independent Entertainment and Technology Consultant specializing in cross-platform content strategies and development for television, film, Internet, mobile, video games and emerging new media platforms.
