I was previously a Director on the Ads team at Twitter, which grew the Twitter ads business into a multi-billion-dollar revenue engine, helping the company IPO in November 2013. I also co-founded Twitter's Performance Ads (Direct Response) business, helping grow it from zero to massive.

Before Twitter, I was a co-founder at Dasient, an internet security company I co-founded in 2008 and sold to Twitter in 2012. Dasient was backed by leading venture capitalists and its customers included the world's top ad networks, online publishers and financial institutions.
