A Bit About Me

I am an executive, entrepreneur and investor with significant experience in online real estate, marketplaces, SaaS software, community and blogging.  I was most recently with the Zillow Group and Trulia, where I was the VP of New Ventures at Trulia, in charge of Rentals, Mortgage and New Construction.  Previously, I was the CEO of ActiveRain and the Executive Vice President of Product at Market Leader, a subsidary of Trulia.  Market Leader is the leading provider of Saas based CRM, email marketing, and lead generation solutions to the residential real estate industry.

How You Leave A Sales Presentation is As Important As Your Pitch

Outside of work, I cherish and love my family.   I am happily married and have two wonderful daughters aged 9 and 7 who keep us very very busy.   In my personal time, I love running, yoga, skiing, volleyball, and my stand-up paddleboard.  

My daughters are in Spanish Immersion school, such that they don't learn any English until the third grade.  We enjoy travelling as a family and recently moved the family to Costa Rica for a month.  I was able to work from Costa Rica, while my kids brushed up on their Spanish.  It was a great life experience.
