I have been in the startup world for about 14 years. Ran worldwide marketing for a company called USWeb/CKS from inception to going public. And have also run marketing for companies that didn't succeed. So lots of battle scars.

Currently VP Marketing for a company called Page Mage which has an application for eBay sellers to create unique eBay listings and publish directly to eBay so sellers can stand out from their competition and sell more.
