I provide technical and functional support to customers for Oracle’s Customer Experience Applications including: Eloqua Marketing Automation and Oracle's Social Relationship Management platform.
Before I joined Oracle, I founded HelloSocialMedia.com - a social media and marketing agency that focused on the creation and execution of social media programs, including blogging, community development, Internet marketing, design and web development.
For years, I have helped businesses integrate social media into their marketing, branding and PR efforts to help them create more awareness and buzz, generate sales and leads, increase ROI and have a positive impact on the bottom line.
Prior to founding HelloSocialMedia.com in 2009, I served as the vice president of marketing for Greenwala.com, overseeing the web development, branding, community building and strategic partnerships to further the company’s mission. In 2007, I created and launched dezumo.com. Dezumo was a social networking community for creative people, such as artists, writers, graphic designers, photographers and musicians.
Previously I also co-founded WunderMarx|PR™, and I've worked for two publicly traded semiconductor companies - Conexant Systems and Mindspeed Technologies - where I directed brand management, Web, creative and communications. I have experience with corporate spin offs, IPOs, mergers and acquisitions, internal communications, branding, corporate marketing, technical writing, marketing and management, and website strategy.
I also have served as president of the Orange County chapter’s of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) as well as AIGA, the Professional Association for Design.
Today, I live with my beautiful wife in Half Moon Bay California.
