He procured sales and joint marketing agreements and created markets for Landmark in Australia, Canada, China (he has made 22 sales trips to Beijing), Europe including Hungary, India, Latin America, and the domestic United States. Most of Roice's oil company and Landmark experience was related to interpretation, and included projects in a wide variety of basins and geologic environments all across the globe: including Alaska, Andaman Sea, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, California, China, Colorado, Gulf of Mexico, Holland, India, Israel, Italy, Louisiana, Montana, Nigeria, Norway, Peru, Senegal, South China Sea, Texas, Turkey, Uruguay, Wyoming. After Landmark and before Continuum, Roice was the founder/Chairman-of-the-Board of HyperMedia Corporation, which had $2 million in revenues over the life of the company. When founded in January 1991, the company was positioned and had the hypermedia technology to become a challenger to Netscape Communications, but was too early to market (before Mosaic, let alone Netscape and Explorer). In any event, significant knowledge was gained in information technologies from customers like Saudi Aramco, Fletcher Challenge Petroleum, the Global Basins Research Network, Mobil Oil, and Unocal. Roice has been a lifelong entrepreneur and his website contains much of further interest (http://www.walden3d.com).
