During my last year at RIT I worked as cinematographer on a student film "Split Screen which went on to win first place at the "Movies on a Shoestring" Film Festival in 1982.
In 1985 I joined the newly formed Electronic Photography Division's Advanced Development group where some of the very first digital photography products would originate.
Co-authored key patent for thumbnail file format for digital cameras and was directly responsible for a number of the very first digital products Kodak released. "Colorsqueeze", "SVPrinter", and the Photoshop export module for the XL7700 Thermal printer to name a few.
In addition wrote hundreds of other proposals that never saw the light of day. (at Kodak at any rate)
In 1990 founded the first Digital Imaging training facilities at Kodak's MEC facility and the Center for Creative Imaging in Camden, ME. (unfortunately never got to work there)
Established the first Interoperability Lab for Digital Products in 1995.
Provided digital imaging and 3D capture and creation consulting for Kodak's Dynamic Imaging Division (lenticular imaging). Helped create a number of 3D images for clients like Disney, Reebock, Pepsi, Pfizer, Martell and more. 1998-2001
Authored and illustrated the digital imaging chapter for Focal Press's "Basic Photographic Materials and Processes" by Stroebel, Compton, Current and Zakia. Considered the bible for RIT photo students.
Founded Zaxys Depth & Motion Imaging my lenticular design firm in 2001 with two now departed partners after Dynamic Imaging folded and I left Kodak.
