Starting in 2000 I began creating short multimedia promotional biographies of Gothic, Industrial, Electronica, EDM, IDM, Noise, Techno, Dark Pop, Electro Punk and Black Metal artists in Macromedia's Director/Shock Wave Format(SWF) and Flash. In 2015 I converted over 200 animations from Flash to HTML5 code and in 2017 I again converted the features to Mpeg4 YouTube Movies. These are my historical archives...
About the author
Winter and Spring 2007
Greetings. Part of my efforts to deal with the diminishing number of submissions has been the idea that maybe I need stronger credentials for the labels, promotional companies and bands that once rushed to take advantage of musical animated promotions of their newest projects for next to nothing (cost wise). So I've been taking classes at University of Alaska Anchorage, and declared my major in Journalism and Public Communications. It keeps me out of trouble along with an occasional gig playing Key-borgs with my friends Cliff and Kara in the local Art-Rock band parallax1.
Well, one band from down-under (Zeitgeist) seems to really see the value in what I do as they sent a couple CDs, (six months apart)! Also the German band Scream Silence sent a submission and LIABACH's North American distributor sent me their latest, along with the British horror punks, The Horrors. Sooo good. Rounding out my monthly exercise, is something I bought myself and decided to present to my many viewers (yea both of you!) Throbbing Gristle is one of my favorite bands from the past and when they put out their first new CD in 25 years I had to have it and share it in bio-Anime (hope they don't sue me).

His creativity with technology began with the Commodore 64 where he learned machine language and BASIC programming.
Next, he utilized that knowledge to explore the ATARI ST and was published in the first edition of COMPUTES! First Book of ATARI ST.
Then moving on to a Windows PC he learned Macromedia Director to created CD-ROM presentations and then Macromedia Flash (later bought by Adobe) to create this Ezine.
Since then his concentration has been various web technologies to maintain and expand his internet presence.
He has a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Public Communication from the University of Alaska with an emphasis in graphic design and a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology from Penn State.
