Founded Online Persona which is is a global digital/online marketing firm located in Austin, TX providing innovative strategies and services across multiple disciplines for YMCAs all over the world. Prior Experience: After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, I worked as a financial analyst and re-discovered my true passion - "computer programming" - via macros with Lotus 123 (I had programmed in BASIC in college) - and I went to work for as a systems engineer at Electronic Data systems learning to program using assembly (ALC), COBOL and C. After 8 years of programming and software development management, I jumped into the startup world with a company focused on similarity search (something that could not be done with relational databases) and ended up pitching a deal to eBay in 1999 in Silicon Valley where I eventually ended up working until 2006. At eBay, I met and worked with Pierre Omidyar, Meg Whitman, Maynard Webb, Jeff Jordan, Mary Lou Song, Eric Salvatierra & Louis Monier on enhancing community trust using data, text analysis and analytics. After eBay, I worked for another startup but soon left to work for HomeAway (vacation rental marketplace) in Austin, Texas managing new business initiatives, sales & support.
