After serving five years as a highly decorated Logistics Officer in the United States Marine Corps, including serving in-theater through the duration of Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Douglas worked for Unilever in New York and then London, where he ended up running the global Knowledge Management Group. He left Unilever in 1997 and established his own consultancy, which he sold in 2000 in order to co-found The Aquarius Film Fund in London. As Head of Films for Aquarius he sourced, evaluated and closed twelve sale and leaseback transactions for more than $200 million. In 2002 he joined Bauer Martinez Studios as Chief Operating Officer, overseeing the production of six international co-productions. In 2003, he then founded The Defender Film Fund, serving as Chairman and CEO and overseeing the raising and management of over $300 million worth of investment and the production and financing of thirteen feature films, all of which fully qualified as official British films under various international co-production treaties. Two of these he wrote. With the changes to the UK tax legislation in 2005, Douglas returned to the United States and resumed a career in technology. In 2009 he joined Evryx Technologies, Inc, a distressed mobile phone technology company, as CEO. Over the course of 18 months he restructured the company, raised additional financing and eventually orchestrated the sale of the company to a Los Angeles mobile technology conglomerate. In addition, he has now written a dozen screenplays. Douglas holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Harvard, studied for an MBA at John Moores Liverpool University and holds US/UK dual-national citizenship. He currently lives in Los Angeles and London.
