the Regent began his professional years with a B.F.A. in Stage Management for Opera. That degree focuses on the merging of technical and artistic elements to achieve definite audience response on the stage. Now he's moved over to online development and he applies those skills -- as well as seventeen years in front of a Macintosh -- to enhance the ways human beings interact with the machines that have become a massive part of modern life. He continues to focus on the audience as he works to develop interfaces and information structures that provide online environments that people can understand and enjoy.
