Key Accomplishments

Most recently I quarterbacked the IPO of an ad tech company. I have built and sold three companies and personally raised over $18M. I have been part of teams that have raised over $50M, not including the IPO. The IPO was an amazing team experience. Building my last company Transpera was another amazing team experience. I was at Microsoft for seven years and have done some of the first online content deals and some of the first mobile content and software deals.
