     WHEREAS, the Employer is engaged in the business of creating, developing,

     WHEREAS, the Employee possesses the experience necessary in administration

     WHEREAS, the Employer and Grafpoint, Inc., a California corporation
("Grafpoint"), have entered into an Agreement-In-Principle dated December 21,
1993 (the "Effective Date") relating to the acquisition of Grafpoint by the
Employer (the "Agreement-In-Principle" and the "Acquisition", respectively), and
which provides for the employment of the Employee by the Employer; and

     WHEREAS, the Employer desires to employ the Employee, and the Employee
desires to be employed by the Employer, all in accordance with the terms and
provisions of this Agreement.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the covenants and promises hereinafter

sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Employer and the Employee

     1.  Employment.  The Employer hereby employs the Employee to serve as
         ----------                                                       
President and Chief Executive Officer of the Employer in accordance with the
terms and provisions of this Agreement, and the Employee hereby accepts such
employment with the Employer.

     2.  Term.  The initial term of this Agreement shall commence on the
         ----                                                           
Effective Date and shall continue for a period of two (2) years thereafter
unless or until this Agreement is terminated as hereinafter provided.  After the
initial term, this Agreement shall be automatically renewed for successive two
(2) year terms unless or until this Agreement is terminated as hereinafter
provided.

                                      -1-

     The initial term of this Agreement shall consist of two (2) periods of
time.  The "Acquisition Period" shall commence on the Effective Date and shall
continue until the date on which the Acquisition is completed, terminated or
abandoned.  The "Operation Period" shall commence on the day immediately
subsequent to the conclusion of the Acquisition Period and shall continue until
the conclusion of the initial term.

     3.  Compensation.  As compensation for all services rendered by the
         ------------                                                   
Employee to the Employer pursuant to this Agreement, the Employer shall pay to
the Employee the following amounts during the term of this Agreement:

     (a) Base Compensation.  The Employer shall pay to the Employee base
         -----------------                                              
compensation at the rate set forth on Schedule A attached hereto and herein
incorporated by reference (the "Base Compensation").  The Base Compensation
shall be payable in semi-monthly installments.  The Base Compensation shall be
reviewed by the Board of Directors of the Employer annually and changes in the
Base Compensation, if any, shall be evidenced by the updating and initialing of
Schedule A by both parties hereto.

     (b) Incentive Bonus.  In addition to the Base Compensation, the Employee
         ---------------                                                     
shall be eligible to receive an annual fiscal year incentive bonus with a
maximum annual amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of the then current Base
Compensation (the "Incentive Bonus").  Payment of the Incentive Bonus will be
based upon accomplishment of goals provided to the Employee by the Board of
Directors of the Employer from time to time and based upon revenue growth,
profitability and cash flow.  The Incentive Bonus shall be prorated during the
initial term of this Agreement.

     (c) Incentive Stock Option Plan.  Upon the commencement of the Operation
         ---------------------------                                         
Period, the Employee shall be provided with an option to purchase shares of the
Employer's stock representing five percent (5%) of the fully diluted shares of
the Employer after taking into account the Acquisition of Grafpoint, provided
that the Acquisition occurs.  In the event that the Acquisition does not occur,
then the number of shares subject to such option shall be determined without
regard to the shares of Grafpoint.  Such option shall be issued to the Employee
pursuant to a Stock Option Plan, and the Employer shall take such steps as may
be necessary to qualify such options as Incentive Stock Options as defined in
Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.  The exercise
price of such options shall be determined by the Board of Directors of the
Employer.  The Employee's rights to exercise such option shall vest on a monthly
basis over a thirty-six (36) month period in accordance with the terms of an
Incentive Stock Option Agreement to be delivered to the Employee and to be
executed by the Employer and the Employee.  Said Incentive Stock Option
Agreement shall provide for an automatic acceleration of any unvested Employee
options in the event of any merger, acquisition or sale of the Employer (other
than a merger, acquisition or sale with respect to which a majority of the
members of the Board of Directors of the Employer (post Grafpoint Acquisition)
prior to the merger, acquisition or sale continue to be a majority of the Board
of Directors of the resulting corporation after such merger, acquisition or
sale.)  In the event that the Employer issues additional shares of its common
stock to the White Pine Stockholders (as defined in a certain Agreement and Plan
of Merger dated August 31, 1993 by and among Visual International, Inc., a
Delaware corporation, WP Acquisition Corp., a

                                      -2-

New Hampshire corporation and White Pine Software, Inc., a New Hampshire
corporation) in accordance with Sections 4.1 and 4.3 of such Agreement and Plan
of Merger, then the number of shares of stock of the Employer which are subject
to the option to be granted to the Employee pursuant to this Subsection 3(c)
shall be increased to represent five percent (5%) of the fully diluted shares of
the Employer's stock after taking into account the additional issuance of its
shares to the White Pine Stockholders.

     (d) Moving Expenses.  The Employer shall reimburse the Employee for
         ---------------                                                
reasonable moving expenses incurred by the Employee in relocating his family and
him to New Hampshire from California.  In addition, the Employer agrees to pay
to the Employee reasonable relocation fees in connection with establishing
temporary housing in New Hampshire.  The amounts payable to the Employee
pursuant to this subsection (d) shall not exceed $75,000.  The Employee's
relocation to New Hampshire shall be consummated by July 15, 1994.

     4.  Vacation and Employee Benefits.  The Employee shall be entitled to an
         ------------------------------                                       
annual paid vacation equal to the greater of:  (a) four (4) weeks, or (b) such
vacation as is determined to be in accordance with the Employer's vacation
policy as applicable to all of its employees generally.   The Employee shall be
credited with three (3) weeks of accrued vacation time representing accrued
vacation time from the Employee's employment with Grafpoint and shall be
entitled to use such accrued vacation time in accordance with the Employer's
vacation policy.  Vacation shall be taken upon reasonable advance notice to the
Employer, and at such times, so as not to interfere with the proper operation of
the Employer's business.

     The Employee shall be entitled to receive and participate in such employee
benefits including, but not limited to, health, vision, dental and retirement
plans, as the Employer shall from time to time determine to provide to its
employees generally.

     5.  Description of Duties.  During the term of this Agreement, the Employee
         ---------------------                                                  
shall be the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Employer and shall::

     (a) Devote on a full time basis all necessary time, best efforts,
professional skills, attention and energies to overseeing and administering all
daily operations and activities of the Employer including, but not limited to,
management of product distribution, inventory control, development of the
internal operating systems of the Employer, and accomplishment of the goals
provided by the Board of Directors of the Employer to the Employee from time to
time;

     (b) Regularly and periodically interact with the Employer's bankers,
accountants, attorneys and any other professionals which the Employer may
engage;

     (c) Review all financial reports and such other information as the Board of
Directors of the Employer may request from time to time;

                                      -3-

     (d) Oversee the preparation and review of managerial and operational
reports and such other information as the Board of Directors of the Employer may

     (g) Act in accordance herewith, and in all accounts be responsible and
responsive to, the Board of Directors of the Employer; and

     (h) Generally perform such services as may be expected of a President and
Chief Executive Officer.

     Notwithstanding the above, during the Acquisition Period the Employee shall
have broad discretion in allocating his time between the Employer and Grafpoint.

     6.  General Services.  During the term of this Agreement, the Employee
         ----------------                                                  
shall:

     (a) Observe the Employer's policies and standards of conduct, as well as
customary standards of business conduct, including any standards prescribed by
law or regulation;

     (b) Perform his duties hereunder in a manner that preserves and protects
the Employer's business reputation; and

     (c) Do all things and render such services as may be necessary or
beneficial in carrying out any of the foregoing.

     7.  Non-Disclosure of Proprietary or Confidential Information and
         -------------------------------------------------------------
Confidential Communications.  The Employee recognizes and acknowledges that the
- ---------------------------                                                    
names, addresses and purchasing history of the Employer's customers, the names
and other pertinent data concerning the persons responsible for purchasing for
such customers, the particular needs and application of such customers for
computer hardware and software programs, the names and addresses of the
Employer's suppliers, the Employer's purchasing history with its suppliers, the
names and other pertinent data concerning the persons employed by the Employer's
suppliers who are responsible for supplying the Employer with products and
services, the Employer's proprietary computer software programs, trade secrets
and any other confidential and proprietary information concerning the business
or affairs of the Employer (including marketing and business plans and
strategies, pricing lists and policies, and cost information) (hereinafter
collectively referred to as the "Confidential Information") constitute a
valuable, proprietary, special and unique asset of the Employer's business.  The
Employee further recognizes and acknowledges that any communications, whether
written, oral or otherwise, that the Employer or any of the Employer's employees
has with the

                                      -4-

Employer's existing or prospective customers and clients are extremely
confidential (hereinafter the "Confidential Communications").  The term
"Confidential Information" shall exclude any information that has been made
public through no fault of the Employee.

     The Employee shall not, for any reason whatsoever, during or after the
termination of his employment with the Employer, use, disclose or allow access
to, for his own benefit or for that of another, the Confidential Information or
the Confidential Communications (or any part thereof) to any person, firm,
corporation, association or other entity for any reason or for any purpose
whatsoever.  Notwithstanding the above, the Employee shall be entitled to
disclose Confidential Information and Confidential Communications in connection
with the proposed merger of Grafpoint with and into the Employer pursuant to the
provisions of the Agreement-In-Principle.

     In the event of a breach or threatened breach by the Employee of the
provisions of this Section, the Employer shall be entitled to an injunction
restraining the Employee from so using, disclosing or allowing access to, in
whole or in part, the Confidential Information and the Confidential
Communications or from rendering any services to any person, firm, corporation,
association or other entity to whom the Confidential Information or the
Confidential Communications, in whole or in part, have been disclosed or are
threatened to be disclosed.  Nothing herein shall be construed as prohibiting
the Employer from pursuing any other remedies available to the Employer for such
breach or threatened breach, including, but not limited to, the recovery of
damages and reasonable attorneys' fees from the Employee.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, the Employee is explicitly authorized to disclose, solely on a need-
to-know basis, Confidential Information and Confidential Communications during
the Acquisition Period to Grafpoint, its officers, directors, employees and
agents.

     Upon termination of this Agreement by either party for any reason, the
Employee shall return to the Employer any of the Confidential Information,
Confidential Communications, charts, company literature, reports, Employer
credit cards or other proprietary materials of the Employer then in the
Employee's possession and all other materials of the Employer which the Board of
Directors of the Employer requests the Employee to so return.

     This Section shall in all respects survive any termination of this
Agreement and shall remain in full force and effect thereafter.  In the event
that any provision of this Section 7 shall conflict with any term or condition
of any other confidentiality agreement between the Employer and the Employee,
then the more restrictive provision shall be deemed to apply in order to
accomplish the purposes of this Section 7 and such other agreements; that being
to protect the Employer's Confidential Information and Confidential
Communications.

     8.  Covenant Not to Compete; Non-solicitation of Employees and Customers.
         --------------------------------------------------------------------  
The Employee agrees that while employed by the Employer and for a continuous
period of one (1) year following the date of the termination of his employment
with the Employer for any reason whatsoever (the "Restricted Period"), he shall
not (without the express prior written consent of the Board of Directors of the
Employer), directly or indirectly, compete

                                      -5-

with the Employer.  In construing the foregoing prohibition, the Employee shall
be deemed to be competing with the Employer if he shall become self-employed in,
or accept employment with, consult with, render services to or become associated
with, own, manage, operate, join, control, or participate in the ownership,
management, operation, or control of, or be connected in any material manner
with, or directly or indirectly enter into the employment of, or make a
substantial investment in, any corporation, partnership, proprietorship or other
type of business organization or entity which engages in, any business involving
the sale, distribution, development or research concerning computer software
which directly and materially competes with the computer software of the
Employer or any other software product lines in or with which the Employer is
then currently involved.

     The Employee further agrees that, during his employment with the Employer
and during the Restricted Period, he shall not solicit any of the Employer's
employees, existing customers or prospective customers (of which the Employee is
then currently aware) on behalf of himself, any corporation, partnership,
proprietorship or any other type of business organization or entity which
engages in any business involving the sale, distribution, development or
research concerning computer software in breach of this Agreement, whether
retail or wholesale.

     This Section shall in all respects survive any termination of this
Agreement and shall remain in full force and effect thereafter.

     9.  Restricted Activities.  During the initial term and any renewal term of
         ---------------------                                                  
this Agreement, the Employee shall not engage in any business activities or
ventures outside of the business activities of the Employer without the express
prior written consent of the Employer's Board of Directors.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, the Employee shall be permitted to serve as the President/CEO of
Grafpoint during the Acquisition Period and shall have broad discretion in
allocating his time between the two (2) companies during the Acquisition Period.

   10.   Termination.
         ----------- 

   (a)   Termination Without Cause.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the
         -------------------------                                         
contrary, this Agreement may be terminated by either the Employer (by act of its
Board of Directors) or the Employee, at any time, without cause; provided,
however that the party desirous of terminating this Agreement shall give the
other party at least thirty (30) days' prior written notice of such termination.
In either event, the Employer retains the right to designate the Employee's
final day of employment hereunder.  The date specified in any notice of
termination as the Employee's final day of employment shall be referred to
herein as the "Termination Date."

         (i)    In the event of the Employee's voluntary termination, then the
    Employee shall, at the request of the Board of Directors of the Employer,
    continue as an employee of the Employer for an additional thirty (30)  day
    period after the Termination Date for the purpose of assisting the Employer
    in locating and training a suitable replacement for the Employee.  During
    such additional period, the Employee

                                      -6-

    shall be entitled to full compensation and benefits and the Employee shall
    continue to be bound by all of the terms contained herein.

         (ii)   In the event of the Employee's voluntary termination without a
    request to continue employment pursuant to paragraph (i) above, then the
    Employee shall be entitled to no compensation or other benefits of any kind
    whatsoever for any period after the Termination Date as set forth in the
    notice of termination given by the Employee to the Employer.

         (iii)  In the event that the Employer (by act of its Board of
    Directors) terminates this Agreement without cause pursuant to this
    subsection (a) during the first year of the  initial term of this Agreement,
    then the Employee shall be entitled to receive a pro rata entitlement to any
    Incentive Bonus earned through the Termination Date and the Base
    Compensation for a period of nine (9) months from the Termination Date (the
    "Post Termination Period"), or until the Employee becomes employed
    elsewhere, whichever occurs first; provided, however, that if the Employee
    becomes employed elsewhere at a base compensation rate lower than his Base
    Compensation rate at the Termination Date, then the Employer shall pay the
    Employee the difference between his Base Compensation rate as of the
    Termination Date and the base compensation rate of his new employment during
    the applicable Post Termination Period.  The Employer also agrees to make
    available to the Employee, at the Employee's sole cost and expense, such
    benefits as may be then provided to the Employee by the Employer.

         (iv)   In the event that the Employer (by act of its Board of
    Directors) terminates this Agreement without cause pursuant to this
    subsection (a) after the first year of the initial term of this Agreement,
    then the Employee shall be entitled to receive a pro rata entitlement to any
    Incentive Bonus earned through the Termination Date and the Base
    Compensation for a period of six (6) months from the Termination Date (the
    "Post Termination Period"), or until the Employee becomes employed
    elsewhere, whichever occurs first; provided, however, that if the Employee
    becomes employed elsewhere at a base compensation rate lower than his Base
    Compensation rate at the Termination Date, then the Employer shall pay the
    Employee the difference between his Base Compensation rate as of the
    Termination Date and the base compensation rate of his new employment during
    the applicable Post Termination Period. The Employer also agrees to make
    available to the Employee, at the Employee's sole cost and expense, such
    benefits as may be then provided to the Employee by the Employer.

    (b)  Termination With Cause.  The Employer (by act of its Board of 
         ----------------------                                                 
Directors) may terminate this Agreement immediately for cause by giving written
notice to the Employee. Termination for cause shall be limited to any willful
breach of his duties by the Employee in the course of his employment hereunder,
or in case of his habitual neglect of his duties or his continued incapacity to
perform his duties hereunder. In the event that this Agreement is terminated
pursuant to this subsection (b), the Employee shall be entitled to fifteen (15)
days severance pay beginning with the Termination Date and will not be entitled
to any further

                                      -7-

compensation, other benefits or bonus of any kind whatsoever for any period
after the Termination Date set forth in the notice given by the Employer to the
Employee.

    (c) No Right to Continuing Employment.  The Employee agrees that nothing
        ---------------------------------                                   
contained in this Agreement shall be construed to give the Employee a right to
continuing employment beyond the Termination Date.

   11.   No Assignment.  The Employee acknowledges that the services to be
         -------------                                                    
rendered by him pursuant to this Agreement are unique.  Accordingly, the
Employee shall not assign any of his rights or delegate any of his duties or
obligations under this Agreement.

   12.   Severability.  Subject only to the reformation of time, geographical
         ------------                                                        
and occupational limitations as set forth in Section 13 hereof, all of the terms
and provisions contained in this Agreement are severable and, in the event that
any of them shall be deemed unenforceable or invalid by a court of competent
jurisdiction, then this Agreement shall be interpreted as if such unenforceable
or invalid term or provision were not contained herein.

   13.   Reformation of Time, Geographical and Occupational Limitations.  In the
         --------------------------------------------------------------         
event that any provision in this Agreement is held to be unenforceable by a
court of competent jurisdiction because it exceeds the maximum time,
geographical or occupational limitations permitted by applicable law, then such
provision(s) shall be and hereby are reformed to the maximum time, geographical
and occupational limitations as may be permitted by applicable law.

   14.   Specific Performance.  Both parties recognize that the services to be
         --------------------                                                 
rendered under this Agreement by the Employee are special, unique and of an
extraordinary character, and that in the event of a breach by the Employee of
the terms or conditions of this Agreement to be performed by him, the Employer
shall be entitled, if it so elects, to institute and prosecute proceedings in
any court of competent jurisdiction, either at law or in equity, to obtain
damages for any breach of this Agreement or to enforce the specific performance
thereof by the Employee, or to enjoin the Employee from engaging in such
activity, but nothing contained herein shall be construed to prevent such other
remedy in the courts, in case of any breach of this Agreement by the Employee,
as the Employer may elect to invoke.

   15.   New Hampshire Law; Choice of Forum. This Agreement shall be governed,
         ----------------------------------                                   
construed and interpreted by, and in accordance with, the laws of the State of
New Hampshire.  Any actions concerning enforcement of this Agreement or in any
way relating to the subject matter of this Agreement shall be litigated only in
New Hampshire state or federal courts of proper jurisdiction and venue.  Each
party hereto expressly agrees to submit to such jurisdiction and venue for the
purposes of this Agreement.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Employer may
seek to enforce the Employee's covenants described in Sections 7, 8 and 9 hereof
in any jurisdiction and venue in which the Employee then resides, breaches or
threatens to breach such covenants.

                                      -8-

   16.   Entire Agreement.  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of
