Why did I create this blog?
I am starting this blog for me. It might not be interesting to most people and I am OK with that. I am interested in a variety of topics and want a place to capture my questions, thoughts and ideas. Twitter’s 140 characters just isn’t long enough.
Hopefully, this will also be a place for those that share my interests and want to know my point of view and comment.
Who am I?
I am a pretty average slightly overweight (but working on that), middle-aged, pasty-white, bald guy who loves his family, wants a better world for them and wants to feel like his life had meaning.
What have I done?
I have over 20 years of marketing, Internet and credit card experience. I was most recently a VP at PayPal. I joined PayPal through the $1 billion acquisition of Bill Me Later, Inc. in which I was a co-founder and led marketing. Prior to BML, I led Internet Marketing for First USA where he was named IAB’s 1999 “Marketer of the Year”. I started my career at Citibank. I earned my MBA at the UVA and my BS at Towson University. I am a life long Baltimore area resident and I am active as an investor, advisor and educator in the Baltimore education community supporting efforts to transform public education.
