Activities have included teaching, research and entrepreneurial ventures.

Entrepreneurial Activities:
-- Created the first spin out company from UNH in 2000, called Chaoticom (later renamed Groove Mobile). Chaoticom pioneered the first music downloads to cell phones (and wrote what are quite possibly the first smart phone apps ever created), including running the Sprint Music Store and others around the world.
