I don’t claim to be famous or important, but if you are interested in me I do hold US Patent 20060101492, Mobile Television Reminder Alert. In answer to your unspoken question, no I am not rich and did not make money from it. Although it has been referenced by the likes of AT&T, Sprint, Research in Motion (aka Blackberry), Qualcomm, Warner Bros, and others.

Mike McColl-Jones, an Australian comedy writer, was kind enough to thank me in a book he wrote about Australian TV personality and comedian Graham Kennedy AO. I had the good fortune to work for a television broadcaster for a few years, which is where I met Mike. For what it’s worth, I also wrote a book.

In my professional life, I am occasionally quoted or mentioned in media, I serve on the board of a few public companies, and I am on the Advisory Board of Rutgers University Big Data Certificate program and Vidcon. My family and I currently live in New York.
