Namespace: SoftwareEng

Tom Kemm was a colorful character with a long and varied past who died of heart related problems in the Los Angeles area around early 1993. He was an early adopter of Fox BASE, and used it and then FoxPro to develop specialized software to track foreign motion picture income, among other entertainment business fucntions. Long time xBase community member Lauren Simon assisted Tom with both the development and sales and marketing. Tom spent the last few years of his life living in a small building just off the eclectic Venice Beach ocean front walk, just north of Tom Rettig's long time base in Marina del Rey. Earlier in his career Tom Kemm had worked in offshore banking in the Caribbean, and he was able to apply much of that expertise into his later internationally focused software.
