HubPages Staff

Joined 8 years ago from Burlingame, CA. Last activity 34 minutes ago.

I'm one of the three co-founders of HubPages.   

I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1998 with a degree in Management Information Systems.  My career started as an intern with Hewlett Packard in 1997.  I worked on developing large scale multi dimensional database applications.

I changed jobs to MongoMusic in 1999.  I was one of the first employees and this is where I got my first startup experience.  We grew to over 60 employees in a year and as the tech bubble was popping, we were acquired by Microsoft to form MSN Music.  At Microsoft, I had many management roles including stints in business management, test, operations, and product management.

It was at MongoMusic where I began learning about search engine optimization and I continued to be passionate about search engines through my career at Microsoft.  I built several hobby sites.  Learned many things about SEO with practical hands on experience while I also read several books and industry forums.  I was acutely aware of the trend of webmasters building AdSense supported sites.

I launched a local Search Engine Optimization Service in 2005 that helped small businesses gain search engine visibility via paid and organic listings.  This services evolved into the idea for HubPages.

I am a frequent speaker at industry events where I talk about search engine optimization, revenue optimization, and building startups.  Recently I spoke at SXSW, PubCon and AdTech.

I played nearly three years of college basketball.  I've coached at numberous camps and have coached two seasons of elementary school level basketball.

I'm a barbecue enthusiast where I dabble in competitive barbecue.  Recently I took home the title of best burger on Drake.  I'm planning on competing in a baby back rib competition this summer.  Friends and family consider my pork tenderloin to be my specialty.
