Key Accomplishments

I'm currently in charge of Yahoo global web search and vertical search, across PC, tablet, and mobile.

In this role, I've been able to affect search to run more at the speed of a startup, even though it's a huge company of cross-funtional and global teams.

Also, I have deep experience with startups as that's been part of me since the beginning of my career.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I've had a lot of startup experience, having founded 2 successful ones, and a couple which had very innovative social networking ideas that were later implemented by Google Plus (entire concept of circles).

I would love to jump back into the entrepreneurial game again, and am confident that my experience, passion, and abilities will be a very valuable asset.
