Bio & Org


Social Impact, Digital Equity activist for Internet #OpenAccess, fundamental systemic change | Psychology professor turned serial, software entrepreneur | Organizer, teacher & community relationship builder

In 1971, I founded a food cooperative while I was an undergraduate at New York University. If the 1970s, my career followed the paradigm shift in psychology from behaviorism to cognitive science. After my PhD at the University of Michigan, I wrote a grant that funded the continuation of a four year post-doctoral fellowship in cognitive neuroscience. This background in cognition helped me to transition to corporate training in Artificial Intelligence, specifically  Expert Systems in the 1980s.

As I shifted from academia into software, I was a part of the paradigm shift it to Object Oriented Technology during the late 1980s and 1990s. Then, around 2006, I was a part of the paradigm shift, going on in the music industry as my company created a digital asset content management system for artists to enter their music into iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, etc.

I was cofounder of this worker owned Cooperative: Could forming worker-owned cooperatives assist with economic recovery?
