I am an experienced executive, entrepreneur, and start-up advisor, with 20+ years of executive-level management and corporate transactional experience. I have established a reputation as an innovative and high performance leader, dealmaker, strategic thinker, and problem solver, who can successfully lead the development of new businesses and revenue opportunities. I have a proven ability to take an organization from its initial phases of development to an eventual sale or liquidity event (sold WeddingChannel to TheKnot and AccessDNA to Informed Medical Decisions) and have structured and negotiated partnerships leading to revenues in excess of $150+ million.
I am currently President & COO at Jukin Media (and a member of its Board of Directors), one of the largest viral video entertainment networks and licensing companies in the world, generating over 2.5 Billion of viewed minutes per month from its extensive library of short-form user-generated video content. I began my relationship with Jukin Media in mid-2013 when the company had roughly 15 employees and have helped grow the business significantly, increasing revenue over 15x and growing the team to over 100 people.
In addition, I currently serve (or have served) on the Board of Directors or Advisory Boards of Jukin Media, VideoInk, EventSorbet, PageWoo, FanAppz, Capsule, ThePlunge, fans.lu (previously P-Design Labs), Informed Medical Decisions, Marriage.com and MergeLocal. I am also an active mentor and advisor to Launchpad L.A. and Start Engine, two Los Angeles based start-up accelerators.
Specialties: Digital media, Internet and e-commerce, start-ups, entrepreneurship, general business strategy, customer development and acquisition, revenue and growth, business and financial modeling, business development, fund raising, and mergers & acquisitions
