About

Prior to joining DraftKings, I founded Ando Media and served as Chief Technology Officer and Head of Research and Development from its inception in 2003 to 2008 when it was acquired by Triton Digital.  

More History

1999 – Founded AlinQ (Ay-Link) which was a hosting provider for Internet radio stations.  

2002 – AlinQ was acquired.

2003 – Founded Ando Media.  We developed the “Ad Injector” platform which put targeted ads into live Internet radio streams and Webcast Metrics which measured the audience (Nielsen for Internet radio).

2004 – Closed a $500,000 seed round as our only financing round.

2009 – Ando Media was acquired by Triton Digital ($30MM).

Today, that software (Ad Injector and Webcast Metrics) runs and measures more than $1 billion worth of Internet radio ads each year across more than 5,000 radio stations in the United States including Pandora, CBS, iHeart, Slacker and thousands of others.

2009 – 2011 – Made some seed investments.

2012 – Invested in DraftKings and joined the company in an operational capacity, first to lead mobile product and then as Chief Product Officer.
