You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I most recently launched the Kindle Fire ad platform for Amazon. Prior to that, I founded and sold a startup in the advertising technology space. I am currently working on launching a startup in the ad tech space again, but this time focussing on driving engagement and commerce via broadcast TV advertising - the place where large advertisers still spend most of their budget, and the place that is most in need of solutions like mine that drive ROI, engagement, and sales for big brands.
