(SNI), where he was responsible for business planning and Development Digital Media. He also headed the operations of Showtime’s Sales and Marketing. He also created and launched Showtime’s On Demand and HDTV. His most profitable enterprise was Showtime PPV with Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis where he produced 4 of the 5 biggest pay-for-view events in cable history.
