More About Me
I’m the Founder and CEO of msg.ai, an artificial intelligence platform for conversational commerce. We are helping brands take advantage of the single biggest engagement and revenue opportunity today: messaging. Our software empowers companies to carry on personal, real-time conversations at scale with millions of consumers concurrently across the world most popular messaging platforms, like Facebook Messenger, Twitter DM, Kik and others.
Some might call me a serial entrepreneur. I started programing when I was nine and had started two companies by the time I graduated college. I worked on Wall Street for many years building technological platforms to help high-frequency trading desks predict future market trends before I returned to my entrepreneurial roots. Before founding msg.ai, I co-founded MobileROI, the only situation- and context-aware mobile marketing automation platform, and MyCityWay, an award-winning, context-aware urban mobility platform.
I was named to Advertising Age’s Creativity 50 list in 2014 and have also been named to “The Silicon Alley 100” and “35 Up-And-Coming Entrepreneurs You Need To Meet.” I also appeared in Wall Street Journal’s Startup of the Year documentary series. I speak frequently at conferences on the topics of AI, mobile monetization / advertising, personalization technology, mobile marketing, mobile engagement, predictive analytics and intelligent cloud-connected big data systems.
In my spare time, I ride and work on my vintage motorcycle, mix music, study minimalist industrial design, and volunteer for two non-profits. I live in New York City.
