I have a long history in the field of IP-based real-time multimedia communications, which includes of voice, video, and data conferencing. Other names these technologies are called are "unified communications", "collaboration", VoIP, and videoconferencing. In parallel, I have spent a significant part of my career on data security, including encryption, authentication, random number generation, hashing, key derivation, etc.

I have been an architect or developer on various signaling systems (including H.323 and SIP), quality of service (QoS) logic and protocols, instant messaging and presence, web-based communications (e.g., WebRTC and proprietary signaling), cloud-based conferencing (including Cisco Webex), security (e.g., encryption and authentication) of media flows, holographic videoconferencing, and more.

In addition to product development activities, I have also been involved in the creation of industry standards. I have engaged in work in a number of standards organizations and supporting organizations, including the ITU, IETF, ETSI, IMTC, H.323 Forum, SIP Forum, TIA, and ATIS.

I have served as the editor of Recommendation ITU-T H.323 and as vice-chair of ITU-T SG16, Chair of WP1/16 (multimedia systems), and Rapporteur of the group working on H.323 and next-generation systems. I have also been involved in the IETF working on enhancing media security for multipoint voice and videoconferencing for traditional and WebRTC endpoints. More recently, that work has been focused on trasmission of media over QUIC.

I also co-founded Packetizer, which is a place where people with similar interests can go to share information related to information technologies. It has proven to be an excellent vehicle through which we can share up-to-date information on various standards, provide development tips, etc. Packetizer also provides email list services in support of various industry initiatives and standards.

I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to speak at a number of industry events, including ones sponsored by the IMTC (now MEF), UpperSide, VON, FCC, TDI, H.323 Forum, ViDe, and the ITU. I have had articles published or been interviewed for articles in numerous publications, including Internet Telephony, ComputerWorld China, ComputerWorld Hong Kong, CPMNet Asia, Telecom Asia, Voice and Data, and Light Reading.

Before entering the ommunications/collaboration field, I worked in the healthcare industry developing a patient admission system, medical billing system, patient scheduling system, etc. That was quite a long time ago, but it is amazing to see work in that area now benefiting from the work I do today, such as telehealth.

I enjoy taking walks through cities in various countries I visit. So far, I haveve had the opportunity to visit Argentina, Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Belgium, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, and Switzerland. I have met a world full of great people and have seen a lot of interesting places.
