Futurist, technologist, novelist, and a person curious about many things. The roll call of jobs I’ve held over the years includes but is not limited to autopsy assistant, police department administrator, salesman, sales manager, literature professor, telecommunications professor, and technology analyst, and research director. I’m a full-time writer now and live in Carlsbad, California with my wife, Jane. My plate’s pretty full right now with writing projects. I’m writing primarily mysteries at the moment when it comes to fiction and non-fiction books on careers and retirement. I have always loved technology and politics almost as much as writing.

For many years I worked as a technology analyst, covering such diverse areas as green technology, wireless networking, network security, and local area networks. I’ve written several books on these topics and still manage to keep up with the latest trends.I started Schatt Research as a way for me to publish my views on key technology trends. Because traditional market research firms charge such outrageous fees for their reports, I’ve decided to publish my studies as books online, available at Amazon for a tiny fraction of what companies I worked for sold the same type of material. Instead of paying $5000, I’m charging the general public $10.

I’m also a volunteer job facilitator for the Jewish Family Service in San Diego with the goal of finding good jobs for the unemployed.

Here is an updated list of the books I’ve written:
