I’ve spent my years since 1990 in various marketing and general management roles in professional sports (San Jose Sharks, San Jose Rhinos), digital media (Imagine Radio), online music (MTV Interactive) , e-commerce (eBay), social media/local (Yelp).

I love online consumer stuff, both as a customer myself, and especially as a business guy.

I live in Redwood City, California.

Yes, that is a closeup of my eye. Gross, huh.
