Director of Marketing
Ron was born and raised in Massachusetts and, post-college, headed west to California (after a brief detour working the theme park circuit in Orlando, FL).
He began his career in the television industry while living in San Francisco where he was the Regional Marketing Manager for the cable advertising interconnect that is now part of Comcast Spotlight.
Following a move to Los Angeles in 2000, Ron worked as Affiliate Ad Sales Director for Fox Family and Sr. Director of Affiliate Marketing for Disney & ESPN Media Networks. He was also the Marketing Director at start-up NGTV.com and cable network G4TV.
During the course of his career, Ron has created innovative, award-winning co-branded promotions and live events with Lucasfilm, ESPN, ABC, Macys, Disney Parks and Resorts, Disney Cruise Line, Disney Channel, ABC Family, IMAX, Konami, Dark Horse Comics, Origin Gaming PCs, Ostendo Technologies, Gentle Giant Collectibles, FOX, Nickelodeon, Microsoft (Xbox), Sony PlayStation and Universal Studios, among others.
Ron returned to Massachusetts in late 2011. As a lifelong science and technology geek, the opportunity to build and grow the marketing department at JoVE is an exciting one. In his spare time, Ron is an avid blogger, amateur photographer, Twitter junkie and fan of all things "Star Wars".
