Alumnus Switches from Computer Code to Cable TV

As an undergrad, John VanZandt got in on the ground floor of UCSD Pascal. More than 30 years later, he has returned to undergrad life as producer of "Off Campus." In this TV drama, four sophomores are strangers until a gunman walks into their classroom. His production company, Dynamite Pictures, produced the thriller "Things You Don't Tell" and he's filming "Haunted" later this year.

VanZandt, a judge at Research Expo 2008, also runs CEO Softcenters Inc., which created an Internet-based surveillance and security system that won the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show's Innovation Award.
