Savings & Loan. He ultimately served as a Vice President in

Management departments. From there, he switched hats
and became a consultant to banks, working with two small
companies based in the Silicon Valley - San Francisco Bay
area. In his final role, before starting his own company,
Douglas managed affiliate relations in the international
sales and marketing divisions for Australia, Africa, India,
and Southeast Asia.

Associates, Douglas and his wife Nita began working with
a team of professionals who are committed to helping
entrepreneurs and artists profit from their creative
endeavors. The business is based on

firm can be found in cities around the globe.

manufactured, and now markets a family of games that appeal to players of all ages
Douglas has also written a non-fiction book which reveals
the candid story of his
own life experiences by illustrating, through personal
example, how we all grapple with
issues that straddle the reality of day-to-day living. It is a memoir of how one person
discovered, through years of introspection, and with the
help of many others, a path that anyone can follow to
attract greater happiness, health, wealth, and wisdom into
their lives (www.PersonalRevelations.com).
