Working World

Spend­ing time with grand­daugh­ter Pen­ny is a con­stant joy.

Like so many young pro­fes­sion­als today, I did not enter a sin­gu­lar job and that was it. I have lived with the phi­los­o­phy that you must love what you do and go where that leads you.

I began as a pro­fes­sion­al actor. I did stage plays, tv com­mer­cials and tour­ing shows. It was a chal­leng­ing exis­tence of audi­tions, rejec­tions and amaz­ing expe­ri­ences in front of live audi­ences. I spent sev­er­al years in a feast and famine exis­tence.

I also had a pas­sion for tak­ing pic­tures and mak­ing movies. That began with my first Kodak cam­era at 10 years of age. I vol­un­teered in high school with a local tv sta­tion, hang­ing around so long that they gave me a job. That cul­mi­nat­ed with me being hired as the local tv pro­gram man­ag­er, shoot­ing, edit­ing, pro­duc­ing tv shows and work­ing with com­mu­ni­ty vol­un­teers. I wrote the com­pa­ny vol­un­teer train­ing man­u­al and was the beta tester for new com­put­er pro­grams.

Aunt Laura’s play­ground is an impor­tant project of Jamaica’s Hopewell Kiwa­nis Club.

Com­put­ers are my pas­sion begin­ning with my trusty KayPro “lunch­box” portable. Every­thing I learned was by tri­al and error, read­ing any­thing I could get my hands on. Now it is a con­stant stream of on-line tuto­ri­als and webi­na­rs. I launched my own busi­ness, DocPC  video and web cre­ation, twen­ty years ago. We cre­ate soft­ware for on-line incen­tive and reg­is­tra­tion pro­grams, video pro­duc­tion, web­sites etc. It is cre­ative team effort com­bin­ing video edit­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, writ­ing and tech­nol­o­gy.

 

What I’ve learned: Keep up with this changing world or you will be shut out.
