I'm part marketer, and part software architect with a penchant for building great teams. Above all I'm thoroughly infected with the entrepreneurial virus.
I'm currently heading up the engineering team, content marketing team and a bit of biz dev for search marketing agency Ayima. I'm also founder of an invite only, beta startup HasReach.com, co-founder of VendorLytics, a hospital procurement management startup , and serving on the advisory board of a health and wellness startup Vital Plan.
Lastly, I'm quite the baby whisperer (thanks Dr. Karp).

I developed my first appetite for generating income from search engines right around the time Google was starting to make a name for itself in the valley. I remember seeing the billboards on the 101 south as I drove from San Francisco to my software development startup gig in Redwood City. Working from my Hayes Valley flat I began to make some significant income as an affiliate by optimizing for Alta Vista and Yahoo. In a matter of months that income became greater than my day job so I quit, moved to Raleigh, and setup an office. Since then I've built scores of web businesses. As is the case with all entrepreneur ventures most flop, but a few have been stellar. Some of the fun ones:
