I am currently working for Apple on some new and exciting projects for the company. Previously, I worked for Google across a broad range of search products, driving innovation for company’s next generation consumer search properties. Before that I was the co-founder and CEO of Groxis, the advanced search engine technology company that created the industryâ€™s first graphical information interface, the GII, to hundreds of prominent content services including Google, Yahoo, and Amazon.
I have spent the last two decades building Internet software companies to help accelerate the evolution of a commerce-enabled Web. I have applied this experience to the creation many pioneering Internet companies and projects in the field of web search, social networking, e-payments, and online trading. I have raised $50M in venture capital for the companies I founded or co-founded since 1992, completing two IPOs, and the sale of two other companies. I have also led e-business transformations at large multi-billion dollar corporations including McKesson (NYSE: MCK), and Interface Global (NASDAQ: IFSIA).
I am an experienced, hands-on company chief executive and entrepreneur. I have managed my companies with a balance of deep technical expertise and product vision along with sound business principles to create value and produce profitable, sustainable ventures.
