My most memorable job

Over and above the nearly three decades I spent performing and touring in bands (that was a calling, not a job) – the most exciting job I ever enjoyed was being a member of the George Lucas team, as a part of the Lucasfilm LTD. THX division.

My office was on Skywalker Ranch, located up Lucas Valley Road, outside San Rafael in Marin County, California. What a blast that was. I was involved in some incredible leading-edge film and entertainment technologies — and I met a host of fascinating people in film, television, and the music recoding industry.

What a remarkable man George Lucas is, as well as the people he surrounds himself with — and what a dream job that was!

Now I am a writer. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I invite you to CLICK HERE to read some of my recent work.

    I was the Development Strategist, which meant — I helped envision ways to strategically position George’s intellectual properties for the growth and benefit of the company.

    It was a great period of my life, but also a very busy one. I traveled the country, flying at least a couple times each week.

    It is a young man’s career position. A lot of fun — but a lot of ‘frequent flier’ miles… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. What an interesting position. It must have been rewarding working in the creative field. All that travel sounds like fun too.

    It was great for quite a while — but it began to get old… it consumes you.
