His work there included starting a business from the ground-up during the dot com crash, building broad coalitions of US medical societies in support of Internet-based physician-patient communication and changing FDA regulations to enable physicians to receive electronic medication and device warnings instead of paper.

He has served as the Executive Producer for its first feature “The Cheer Ambassadors”. The film will premier at the Bangkok World Film Festival in January 2012.
