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 and testing URL strategies. My determination and perseverance paid off as I was able to ascertain how to make webpages appear in the Top 5 on the search engine results. After a short stint practicing law (eight weeks), I founded Prime Visibility, a full service digital media agency, in 1998. Prime Visibility's blue chip client roster includes The Trump Organization, CIT, Brother International, McGraw Hill, FOXNews.com, Henry Schein Medical, TheStreet.com, Lauren Hutton, Tourneau, The NPD Group, KORG, The Playboy Club and many, many more!
With the help of an outstanding team, I grew Prime Visibility from myself to 60+ people and in both 2007 & 2008 made the INC List of Fastest Growing Companies in the U.S. . . . .I have been recognized as a search engine marketing expert on Fox Business and the A&E Biography Channel for a documentary on Google - see video here. I was also featured as an Angel Investor on the show Live It Up and a Social Media Expert on PBS. Admittedly, I am a domain name addict and have been procuring domain names since 1997; and one of my newest ventures is Angel Dough Ventures where new business ideas and opportunities are identified, internally developed, and new products & services are launched. As an attorney, I am also Of Counsel to Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, PC where we have established a leading Digital Media Practice Group.
In an effort to invest in more Long Island-based entrepreneurs and startups, in early 2013 I co-founded LaunchPad Long Island which is a 12k sq ft business accelerator and co-working space in Mineola, New York and we also have a $250,000 seed fund.
Looking to improve and grow Long Island, I founded LI Startups and I sit on the Board of Directos for LISTnet, The Long Island Angel Network, and rock CAN roll as well the Digital Advisory Board for St Jude Hospital and The Eric Trump Foundation. I reside on Long Island, New York with my extremely supportive wife and three sons.
