You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

With 11 novels--mostly in the horror genre--to my credit and over 30 years in digital entertainment and games, I am uniquely positioned for success in the VR market, where horror is already considered one of the best suited for the medium. Rather than approach this opportunistically, I am able to bring together all my expertise and prodigious talent worldwide to create the best horror content available for virtual reality.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

While I have broad business experience, my real talents lie in vision and bringing together the right parties to execute on that vision. I'm looking for those with complementary skillsets, particularly as it pertains to financial issues and funding. I am looking for those who can bring resources to the table that will move Cold Room forward. To this end, I am open to individuals or strategic partnerships.

As an Advisor

I primarily advise companies on creative issues, both on product-specific execution as well as overall creative direction. As a writer, my strengths are story, character, world-building--all things that can provide entertainment value, emotion and engagement. This things are often lacking in games and other entertainment that's technology-based. Thus, I am less to be consulted with on the technical issues of games and such. Moreover, as learned at companies like Disney, Henson, Warner Bros. and Nickelodeon, laying the proper creative foundation for content leads to more organic and successful brand extensions, as evidenced not only by successful and revenue-generating consumer products such as toys and t-shirts, but in storytelling across media, as evidenced by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
