Rick Zalon first developed an interest in telling this particular story while teaching (as a part-time adjunct) in a progressive “green” MBA program at the now-defunct New College of California in Sonoma County, where he encountered many of the controversies, contradictions, passions and unique personality types/disorders portrayed in “Coyote Point Casino.” Trained as a journalist in the US Air Force during the Vietnam era (he served as a public affairs representative and TV network liaison during the last two Apollo missions), Zalon worked as a financial executive in Silicon Valley, wrote the original business plan for Office Depot, consulted for a number of joint-venture companies in China, and survived stage IV non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He currently maintains a small tax and consulting practice, coaches CPA exam candidates and teaches part time at Dominican University of California’s more conventional School of Business and Leadership.
