SOME BACKGROUND

I've had a pretty diverse career. Initially, I spent years evangelizing the use of computers for filmmakers and, later, consumers. During this time I was involved with editing both television and feature films (The Twilight Zone; Lonesome Dove; The Sheltering Sky). I've written and published a bunch of serious books (Nonlinear; The Little Digital Video Book) and a few humorous ones (Defending the Galaxy; Computer Gardening Made Simple). As an entrepreneur, I have been both a founder and a participant in start-up companies. My experiences range from bricks-and-mortar retail to high tech and I continue to be a vocal advocate for individuals to create and distribute content independently, from movies and music to books and software. I'm a student of industry disruptions. And I love photography.

Rubin received an Sc.B. in neuroscience from Brown University. But summers at Camp Shewahmegon changed everything.

business background

Includes Lucasfilm, where my fortunate career began, and then Netflix. He spent over 10 years as the cofounder and CEO of Petroglyph Ceramic Lounge and helped launch the you-paint-it ceramic industry. After Petroglyph and before Netflix, he stopped to write and publish Droidmaker. Most recently he's an accomplished product creator, developing new web and mobile applications, including Pingster, MapOmatic and MedChart. I'm passionate about product simplicity.

THE KIDS

Between 2000 and 2005, while my kids were young and I was doing a lot of parenting and home video, I produced 6 books teaching and evangelizing digital video for consumers (and had one viral video on the new YouTube.) Most my projects, however, were family-oriented documentary-style music videos.
