Fantini designed and implemented Internet based training and testing
applications for a global install-base of Imaginera users.

learning production strategy and also
contributed to the writing of Amtech's e-learning business and marketing
plans. Fantini's work with Amtech was so inventive that he is listed
as Creative Director on "U.S. Patent Number 6,288,753 Interactive

to move back to his home town of Philadelphia.
Before his move, Fantini lived in Nashville, TN where he was sole proprietor

Blue Forest changed its name in 1998 to represent
a more corporate image and now operates as Kinetic Media Ventures while
continuing to brand separate entities to serve specific markets.
"Aside from all this work, I've managed to explore a great deal of this Earth, paint some canvas, mold some clay, carve some stone, develop some theories of quantum dynamic spatial philosophy, listen and dance to a lot of great live music, make some live music (guitar, flute, hand-drums), experience the finer cultural events our species has to offer, jump out of a couple airplanes, win a few crew regattas, read a lot of great books, write a few (er, plethora of) poems, stories, and screenplays, and meet a LOT of amazing people."
