Professional Info

I'm currently Director of Corporate Digital Experience at eBay. Previously, I was Director of the B2B Web Media Team at QuinStreet Enterprise. Prior to that, I was Director of Web Marketing & Online Communities at Symantec. See LinkedIn for more details.


In my spare time, I play lead guitar in A Good Buzz -- a blues, classic rock, and country cover band based in Silicon Valley. I also enjoy composing and recording music. You'll find a selection of my compositions from 1991 through 2003 on this site -- as well as on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Spotify.

I play Gibson, Taylor, and Ovation guitars. I use Blackstar, Yamaha, and Fishman amps. Some of my guitar player influences include Chet Atkins, Junior Brown, Jim Campilongo, Al Di Meola, Robben Ford, Danny Gatton, Allan Holdsworth, Mark Knopfler, Pat Martino, and Wes Montgomery. I studied under Vinny Valentino for a brief period in the late 1990s.


My blog Socket offers occasional observations on gadgets and technology. You can also find me on Twitter and Google+.
