I began optimizing websites in 1996 while attending law school in Michigan. In these pre-Google years, I spent countless hours researching keywords, writing tags & copy, testing URL strategies and building my internet marketing skills. My determination and perseverance paid off as I was able to teach myself how to make webpages appear in the Top 5 of the search engine results. Thereafter I began registering domain names and developing internet marketing strategies to get tons of free qualified website traffic.
After practicing law for about eight weeks, I founded Prime Visibility in 1998, which was acquired a decade later by PV Media Group in 2008 and sold again in 2011 to a public company. In my 15+ years experience, I have been extremely fortunate to work with some of the best companies and the brightest people at The Trump Organization, CIT, Brother International, McGraw Hill, FOXNews.com, Tribune Interactive, Lauren Hutton, TheStreet.com, Tourneau, Executive Jet Management, The NPD Group, Henry Schein and many, many more!
I have appeared on Fox Business, A&E Biography and Live It Up as an Internet marketing, search engine optimization (SEO) and domain investing expert. A tremendous accomplishment for my team and I occured in both 2007 & 2008 when Prime Visibility made the Inc. List of Fastest Growing Companies in America.
I am currently the Founder & CEO of Angel Dough Ventures, which has more than a dozen portfolio companies and investments, the Co-Founder of LaunchPad Long Island a 12k sq foot business accelerator and coworking community and the Founder of LI Startups, an organization that educates and provides mentors who have successful experience founding, growing and selling their companies. In 2012, I became Of Counsel to Ruskin Moscou Faltischek where we are building the leading Digital Media practice. I am also on the Board of the Long Island Angel Network and LISTnet. On the non-profit side I sit on the Board of rock CAN roll and am on the Executive Committee for the Eric Trump Foundation and the Digital Advisory Board at St Jude Hospital.
