Being a foodie, I thought the microwave oven was the coolest invention of this century, until I discovered and dated the Internet circa 1980s. I fell in love with her fully in 1994 when I worked for a SoftBank company. Since then, I truly believe it has and will continue to change the way we live, work and play.
I'd helmed executive management positions in the digital media & technology space: SoftBANK Forums, Ziff-Davis, ZDNet and CNet Networks. My specialty is in Asian market entry strategies, enabled by a global network of influential peers who share my passion for innovation.
I also love the entrepreneur arena: co-founder of e-Cop, a world-first 24x7 internet security surveillance company; was a Board Member and seed investor of Brandtology, a leading social media intelligence provider; co-founder & Chairman of ViSenze - an intelligent visual recognition technology provider; and co-founder of 6Estates, a digital ethnography startup
