High Tech Heroes

I directed most of the 56 episodes of High Tech Heroes, a half-hour community-access television show. High Tech Heroes showcased people who made a substantial technical contribution to the high-tech world. Many guests were people from behind the scenes. Engineers, technicians, marketers, corporate officers, inventors, educators, all have tales to tell.
