I have also taken a strategic approach to achieving digital transformation goals and product development initiatives for companies like Sears, the NewME Accelerator, the RLJ Companies, NewFuturo.com, Professional Diversity Network, IAC, Tribune Media, UptownMagazine, VIBE, and many others.

My earlier roles have included VP, Global Business Development and Product Strategy for Cision; co-founder / VP of Product and Content at RushmoreDrive.com (the IAC vertical search portal); and pioneer of Social TV and the Electronic Program Guidance (EPG) service Zap2it.com (America's fave TV, Movie, & Celebrity destination), where I was Head of Affiliate Products and Programs for the Tribune Media Services division.
