Community Focus: Headless CMS Admins, Developers and Authors
I discovered headless technologies, specifically, Contentful, and became a huge fan of headless CMS, content architecting and content modeling. I created various content courses around that to attract developers, administrators and authors. The site quickly grew into what it is today, THE place to learn all about Content Modeling and Headless CMS technologies (focused on CMS's).

Community Focus: Virtual and Augmented Reality Creators
As a VR and AR evangelist and creator of 360 and VR since November of 2017, I'm a huge believer of immersive technology and its future in our lives. I wanted to have a place where I could learn how to create VR taught by industry professionals, so I decided to create HowToCreateVR.com in November of 2018. Since then, it has become THE place to watch tutorials on how to create Virtual (and Augmented) Reality taught by industry professionals. You can also listen to weekly interviews with industry insiders and creators, attend live VR events in AltspaceVR and watch free live webinars, all focused on immersive technologies. In September 2019, How To Create VR was acquired by Humaneyes Technologies.

Community Focus: New Internet Business Users
During the "Dot Com" era, I created a website called MyInternetDesktop.com, which allowed users to manage their life on the Web. The site offered an API which allowed developers to create apps that ran inside My Internet Desktop. Grew the site to thousands of users, at which point, it was acquired by Internet Appliance Network. I then managed both the acquisition of the site and the post-acquisition integration of the site into IAN’s infrastructure.
