    in Entertainment

    1.Being self published and the benefits of self marketing 2.The Brand ( self) 3.The product ( my 20 book) 4.

    Engineering graduate of U. of Houston, Masters in Marketing from UCLA. 35 years in Toy biz (17 @ Mattel, balance of years with own company. Most of career spent living and working in the Orient. Scuba Dive, Lived in Florida Keys for 12 years. Hawaii for two years, S. Cal most other years, Currently live on Emerald Coast of Florida Panhandle ( Gulf Breeze, FL)

     My thirty years of adventure and experiences living and working in the Far East gives me the voice of authority in my writings of Asian business and crime, and how the two are considered one in the same.I was immediately struck as a young man of the Oriental's obsession with power and greed, gambling and sex, and the need to win at any cost. Their driving force of "Face", and the life threatening humiliation of losing it. I have spent my share of time in little known back-water ports around Asia, learning and applying the rules of the East; knowing when a business deal is done, when to run, believe only half of what you see, and nothing of what you are told; survival goes in the plus column.
