I was Executive Producer of Home Aid, a campaign to benefit the homeless with consultant Ken Kragen (Live Aid, Net Aid, We Are the World, Hands Across America).
My book, Be The Media, was featured in the NY Times after pre-selling 5,000 copies in 11 days via social media.
I've keynoted everywhere from the United Nations (3x in 2010) to Columbia University and National Speakers Association, from Amsterdam to Zagreb.
My award-winning radio show included guests Seth Godin, Wired co-founder Kevin Kelly, singer Jill Sobule, craigslist’s Craig Newmark, and Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales.
From 1999-2002 I was CEO of Kinecta, where I raised $30 million in 2 years. Kinecta is now part of Oracle <NASDAQ: ORCL>
From 1994-1999 I was Vice President with Reuters, where I pioneered online syndication, years before RSS was invented.
I have served on numerous boards including Director of Home Aid America.
