My company, Zavoodi Inc., creates customized turn-key social network communities — like the one you're using now. Organizations like Apple and Apple Europe utilize this customized collaboration platform for members of their organization to interact with one-another in a decidedly social fashion.
I recently worked as the Director of Online Technology for Northern Kentucky University's College of Informatics for four years. There, I lead the strategic and operational initiatives that laid the digital foundations for this new, dynamic, high-tech college.
As former co-chair of the MacLearning.org steering committee, I helped guide the body that oversees our web site, webcasts, and the AcademiX conference series.
I co-authored a paper "The Impact of Noise on Learning: Information Assimilation and Productivity", which was presented at EDINEB in June of 2006. My current foci include social networks, multipoint media distribution techniques and multichannel learning.
Prior to joining NKU, I was Director of Online Communication for the College of Business at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
My industry experience includes KPMG Consulting (now BearingPoint), where I was a senior consultant in the Broadband Solutions Group in the Communication and Content practice. Prior to KPMG, I held positions in systems administration, publishing, and communication for firms such as Time Warner Telecom, Music News Inc., and Totum Global.
As an entrepreneur, I've launched multiple media companies, including web development startups, an entertainment magazine, a newspaper, and recording studio. Under my leadership, 'The Denver Scene', grew to be the region's largest entertainment publication.
Recent projects include the MacLearning.org community, Groove River (a social network for independent musicians), the Apple Distinguished Educators community, and the Apple Regional Training Centers community.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Business from the University of Colorado, where I graduated magna cum laude.
I make my home in Fort Thomas, Kentucky with my wife of 20 years, three awesome children, and a dog.
