After many years on the radio on stations like WSIX, KNIX and Z107, I made a career change in 1995 becoming a co-founder of InterActive Agency (the first advertising and public relations firm focused on the Internet). iAgency's clients included the Dodgers, Warner Bros, AOL, Happy Puppy, Engage Games Online, the Palace etc.

In 2000, I sold iAgency to my business partner and joined Live365 as the companies VP of marketing and public relations. It soon became the #1 Internet Radio Network.

Since 2003, which also includes some wonderful years @ MeziMedia (which was acquired by ValueClick), I developed an expertise in cyber-security which also became my career focus. This all began for me at Panda Security as its VP of Public Relations. Most recently I was with Trend Micro as its company’s Global Senior Public Relations Manager focused on Mobile and Cyber Security. I have also served as a Senior Manager with Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing Division focused on the MAPP program, SIR reports and Conferences such as Blackhat and CanSecWest.

Additionally, I have also served for close to a decade as a judge for the Codie Awards.
