My Current Companies & Roles:


Co-founder & Chairman


Board of Director


Board of Director

My first job was at Apple, for the company that changed everything supplying me with a Mac SE in high school. After three months of my first job, our small division of 4 people spun out into a startup (User Group Connection). At 23 years old I held the VP of Marketing title, and I started a race for my capabilities to catch up to my responsibilities.

From there, I led marketing, product, and sales for several silicon valley startups, including a word of mouth marketing consultancy, a community + content online startup (, and a web-based telecommunications company (Telepost). All three startups, like many, were 10 years ahead of the market. But, lessons were learned.

In 1999, Dell recruited me to Austin to run I led operations, content, design, analytics, three redesigns and formed Dell’s global online strategy. We grew consumer online revenue to over $3.5 billion. Next, I launched Dell's Consumer CRM group where we developed new markets, a retail marketing strategy, database marketing programs, Hispanic marketing, our division's three-year plan, customer-centricity strategy, and change leadership program. 

In 2005 I went back to my startup roots to become founding CMO for Bazaarvoice Inc. For our first 5 years I led product, marketing and business development. My team built 7 products (and 7 patents). After 5 years we had grown to 500 people and $50 million revenue, before it went public in 2012.

In 2010 I became founder and CEO of Mass Relevance a SaaS platform for curating real-time content for social TV and brands. We negotiated exclusive partnerships of Twitter and Facebook and worked with nearly every league and major broadcast network and many brands. Within 3 years Mass Relevance won a technical Emmy and grew to 150 people globally serving 300 clients prior to merging with Spredfast in April, 2014. (video) (now Khorus).

During the same time, in 2012, I co-founded and was Chairman of Clearhead,  the leading agency in data-driven experience optimization. In 5 years we grew the company to 100 people, and it was acquired by Accenture in July, 2017.

I am currently co-founder and Chairman of Fair Worlds, an immersive reality agency/consultancy, co-owner of Texas Drift Academy, and on the boards of Interplay Learning and Axial Shift.
