Technologist, Executive, Entrepreneur

Professional: I have 24 years of technology development, executive management and entrepreneurial experience. I am currently working as the General Manager of eBay Audience Platform at eBay Advertising. Prior to eBay, I worked for Cox Digital Solutions as the SVP & Chief Technology Officer for about 3 years. I founded a startup in 2008 and ran it for a year. I have been working in online advertising technology space since early 2005 when I joined Turn as the first employee. Before that, I worked on Yahoo, Inktomi, FAST and Alta Vista web search engines. Prior to web search, I worked on database server development at IBM, Informix and Illustra. I started my career as a systems engineer in 1991 at Larsen & Toubro. Click here for more details of my professional work.
Personal: I live in the East Bay (San Francisco, California). I am a nature enthusiast and enjoy the regional parks next door. I am trying to learn photography but don't find much time for it. This hobby demands a lot of practice and patience. I like to read the latest developments in science. I often find myself spending quite a bit of time following politics, both domestic and international. I also like to be somewhat active at local level. I founded a neighborhood group and have been running this online group of over 2000 members since 2002.
