I bring connections into traditional media. The experience of having made many mistakes, allows me, upon occasion, to help others avoid those mistakes.
I negotiated first music deal with Steve Jobs that became the basis of deals Apple subsequently did with Sony, Universal, EMI, and BMG. Since 2009 I have served as Advisor, Director or angel investor to venture-backed companies with $850 million in exits.
In addition to serving on the Boards of Reverbnation and MediaNet, I have served on the Board of Brightcove (General Catalyst backed) in Boston, successful IPO in 2012; and Scanscout (merged to form Tremor), successful IPO in 2013. I have also served on the Advisory Boards of half a dozen venture-backed companies including Betaworks, Bit.ly, and Mixify.
