DYNAMIC PATHWAYS COMPANY, 180 Newport Center Drive, Newport Beach, CA
Developer, Architect, CTO, CEO

Two hundred thousand units (wholesale value $12M) of prepackaged shrinkwrapped software were written and sold direct to users and through distribution to retail (Ingram, BestBuy, CompUSA, etc). Products were launched through Virgin, 1988-91. Manufacturing was outsourced. Products included software, text content, manuals and workbooks. Products were called "Success, Inc," the Powerful Business Plan writer, "Sales and Marketing Success," and "Startup Success." They broke new ground for software, established shelf space, and began a genre of interactive planning software.

I designed and wrote the engine in C. The original DOS version was created with Turbo C and Microsoft QuickC. The MacIntosh version was written with Symantec ThinkC in 1991. This evolved into the Windows 3.1 version with Microsoft's Professional C and Borland's C (v4.5). The Windows 95 edition was completed in 1996 with the MS Visual Studio IDE and Visual C/C++. Calls were direct to the Win32 API and GDI. All products were tested and certified by Microsoft for DOS, Windows 3.1, 95 and 98.

TQ SYSTEMS, 412 North Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, CA
Developer, Architect, Programmer, Sales and Support, VAR

The mass-produced software of Dynamic Pathways company was developed largely from this Questionnaire Automation package™. Networked microcomputers served real-time automated presentations for touchscreen collection of data . I wrote all original code using Microsoft compiled basic and HP2648 terminal control language for HP 150 computers on a 3Com 802.3 network. The result was a turnkey sytem that included modules for setup, questionnaire definition, presentation and data analysis. Reports included statistics and graphs that identified the significant differences of samples and controls. Human responses were therefore assessed by traditional research processes. An option provided paper presentation of these surveys using a barcode reader for quick data entry.

I designed, wrote, documented, marketed, sold, installed and serviced these systems with as many as 16 simultaneous collection stations. The users' manual (650 pages) included illustrations and detailed instructions for the customer. This system could also serve as a stand-alone presentation and collection module in any environment where displays and data collection were appropriate. An NIH/SBIR (National Institute of Health/Small Business Innovative Research) grant was written to apply this system for psychiatric screening. Hewlett-Packard VAR

HUNT-WESSON FOODS, R&D, Technical Center, Fullerton, CA
Senior Scientific Computer Systems Analyst, Computer Systems Manager, Project Leader

From the Statistics Department in Research and Development, I was responsible for computer implementation and service for 400 professionals among analytical chemistry, statistics, packaging, processes engineering and product development in the Corporate Technical Center. I managed a Hewlett-Packard 3356/57 (1000) Laboratory Automation System (LAS) for high-pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). I attended training by Hewlett-Packard in Sunnvale, CA and Avondale, PA. I executed, modified and supervised routine statistical analysis using Fortran IV programs for IBM 360/4000 OS JCL TSO.

Working with engineers, I implemented the use of microcomputers in R&D for pilot plant development, package design, new products, sensory analysis, quality assurance, chemical analysis, human resources (Hay data) and marketing. I performed experimental design and statistical analysis. In 1984, I was awarded the 1984 Employee of the Year Award in Research and Development for writing and implementing RIPS, a Research Information Processessing System on the HP1000 minicomputer. Curve-fitting by least squares and data significance were very popular. I presented a series of lectures in-house, at UCD, and published an article in the Journal of the IFT (International Food Technologists): Fritz, "Computers in the Laboratory," Food Technology, Volume 38, no 9, Sept 1984.

UNIVERSITY of CALIFORNIA, IRVINE Medical Center , Pediatrics Department, 101 City Drive, Orange, CA
Research Associate IV

I designed and executed experiments to evaluate hypothermia as a pretreatment for surgery. Performed experimental surgery on animals, and taught catheterization to clinical nurses and interns. Measured and analyzed electrocardiography, arterial and venous blood pressures, tissue perfusion, oxygen partial pressures and carbon dioxide production. These analog parameters were digitized and measured in real-time on a DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation) Minc / PDP-11 (OS RT-11). Programs for data collection and analysis were written in Basic. Bench laboratory analysis data (hemoglogin, hematocrit, and coulter counter data) were manually entered into the analysis system. Graphics and statistical summaries for publications were generated. (Fritz, Beran and Sperling, "A File System for Physiological Analysis,Proceedings of the Digital Equipment User's Society (DECUS), Volume 7, no 2, 1980) Post graduate research credits were offered to UCI students for their participation.
