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.
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.
