I founded Traffikoo in January 2005 to provide internet marketing services and ecommerce solutions. Since inception Traffikoo has sent around $250m in new business to its customers (mostly ecommerce stores, online services, and SaaS companies). Traffikoo also operates some ecommerce businesses directly, and creates SaaS tools for internet marketers such as Addue (Addue.com).

Formerly I founded Engim, a venture-backed wireless LAN semiconductor company in Boston, Massachusetts, and served as its CTO. Engim was particularly well-known for its patented high speed and resolution analog-digital and digital-analog converters, wideband 2.4GHz and 5Ghz RF front-ends, and high performance digital baseband processing chips.
