The Dolphin3D Team
Lead Developer, President
Ron is a self-taught software developer and gadgeteer who began his computer training on the Commodore 64 (with its powerful cassette tape mass storage device and beautiful black-and-white 13" SDTV monitor). In the beginning of the home PC revolution Ron sold the first Macs and PCs through early computer retailers. When business was slow he benevolently hacked at the stores' computers. One day a business owner came to the store and asked for a particular software solution - one that didn't exist - so Ron entered into his first computer consulting contract and has been developing software from scratch ever since. He has worked with Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems and respects all of them for what they do best. Ron has focused his computer career on user-friendly software development, Internet client software engineering, widely distributed client-server applications including application localization (esp. Mandarin Chinese), client and server-side database applications, and hardware-software systems integration. Ron has conceived, designed, coded, and managed numerous software applications for a wide variety of industries including medical, pharmaceutical, banking, publishing, retail, real estate, travel, and transportation; he has also developed and managed applications for local, state, and federal government agencies.
Timothy Frank Co-founder, VP R&D, Acting CFO
Timothy has been a creative force in the development of Dolphin3D from its earliest inception. He has a Master's Degree in Accountancy from Brigham Young University's Marriott School of Management and a Certificate in Spanish Language Translation from the University of Texas at El Paso. Ever since they were boys growing up in Southern California Timothy and Ron have enjoyed creative brainstorming together. Dolphin3D
is their first mutual brainchild to market.
Louis J. Frank Angel Investor, Business Advisor
Jack holds an MBA from the University of Southern California where he spent most of his adult career working for Southern California Edison. His steady, conservative approach to business has served as a useful philosophical counterpoint to the fanciful entrepreneurial meanderings of his sons, in whom he somehow helped engender an insatiable
desire for the American Dream. Thanks, Dad.
