Co-Founder at VMA Media
VMA Media’s mission is to advance and inspire brands and their agencies to explore and embrace today’s marketing strategies. We do this through in-market roundtables, bi-coastal summits, private dinners, and more. I eat a lot of hors d’oeuvres in a year.
In 2001 I helped launch iMedia Communications (iMedia Summits & iMedia Connection.com), which we sold in 2006 to dmg :: events, a division of DMGT. That didn’t suck.
As Vice President, Online for dmg :: events, I conceptualized, launched and ran multiple B2B web properties for dmg businesses around the world, including iMedia Connection, ad:tech, Evanta, Petroleum Show, Gastech, and Adipec.
In 1999, I joined Digitrends, moving the company’s online division in-house for the first time and playing an integral part toward making Digitrends.net the interactive marketing industry’s leading site. It was so far ahead of its time that it is long since defunct.
My career in the online industry began in 1994 when, in those days, having a mouse and knowing what a server was set me apart and allowed me to successfully run my own consulting company specializing in website strategy and eCommerce.
I graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a degree in Religious Studies and an emphasis in philosophy. If you have to ask, make sure there are drinks involved.
My wife Monica is amazing (puts up with me). Children: Hallie, Brendan, and baby Cole enjoy Lego video games, swimming, swimming, hiking, reading, the beach, and sometimes going swimming. One of them even talks more than I do.
