Impress us with your qualifications

I have been in the online marketing space for over 18 years. Started off as a Director of Business Development for the Discovery Channel before moving to Chicago to join a well-funded startup. Then ventured into SEO, PPC and then launching my first affiliate network in 2008 and after 2 subsequent mergers and acquisitions had a major back surgery which kept me out of the industry for little over a year. Then came back and started consulting brands in the nutra and health space.

Tell us about a time you provided great service to someone or something

This actually started 2 years ago during the Affiliate World Asia where my wife initially had an idea to visit shelters and adoption agencies in Bangkok and donate food, healthcare items, and money. Did a post on one of the FB groups which went viral and the whole industry got behind it and donated to the cause. We did this last December also and had a record-setting phenomenal response. We are all blessed indeed.
