B. Clay Shannon
Founder Across Time & Space
United States United States
I am in the process of morphing from a software developer into a portrayer of Mark Twain. My monologue (or one-man play, entitled "The Adventures of Mark Twain: As Told By Himself" and set in 1896) features Twain giving an overview of his life up till then. The performance includes the relating of interesting experiences and humorous anecdotes from Twain's boyhood and youth, his time as a riverboat pilot, his wild and woolly adventures in the Territory of Nevada and California, and experiences as a writer and world traveler, including recollections of meetings with many of the famous and powerful of the 19th century - royalty, business magnates, fellow authors, as well as intimate glimpses into his home life (his parents, siblings, wife, and children).

Peripatetic and picaresque, I have lived in eight states; specifically, besides my native California (where I was born and where I now again reside) in chronological order: New York, Montana, Alaska, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Idaho, and Missouri.

I am also a writer of both fiction (for which I use a nom de plume, "Blackbird Crow Raven", as a nod to my Native American heritage - I am "½ Cowboy, ½ Indian") and nonfiction, including a two-volume social and cultural history of the U.S. which covers important events from 1620-2006: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/blackbirdcraven

Creating software and solutions that make things easy and accessible is something I am very passionate about.

I’ve led product innovation and engineering at both large companies and startups. Most recently, I was Senior Vice President of Engineering and Operations at GlobalScholar, a startup education software company. Prior to that I was the General Manager for Amazon’s S3 web services.

My 15 years leading Microsoft‘s SQL BI platform and services inspired me to create Forerunner Software, with the mission to provide the next generation enterprise reporting and embedded BI solutions. At Microsoft, I was the lead architect and General Manager of one of Microsoft’s most broadly used reporting technologies, SQL Server Reporting Services. I’ve been awarded over 20 patents and plan to keep building innovative products and technologies.

I’ve also served on the Board of Directors for IMS Global Learning Consortium a non-profit organization that works to promote the adoption of technology in education and drive learning impacts.
