I founded Traffikoo in January 2005 to provide internet marketing and ecommerce software and services. Since inception Traffikoo has sent around $500m in new business to its customers (mostly ecommerce stores, online services, and SaaS companies). Traffikoo is also a developer of SaaS tools such as Qex AI, an AI email assistant tool, Referrals.Page, an AI-powered affiliate marketing tool, and Addue, a tool suite for online marketers, and also owns and operates some ecommerce businesses directly.

A mostly complete list of the products I worked on at Traffikoo is here

Formerly I founded Engim, a venture-backed wireless LAN semiconductor company in Boston, Massachusetts, and served as its Chief Technology Officer. Engim was 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.

I'm an occasional angel investor. My areas of interest: Enterprise SaaS, Marketplaces, AI, and Analog IC Design.
