1. Please give us a quick introduction of yourself.

I am a hardworking, happy go lucky, funny but aggressive Business Development professional who has worked in technology and digital media for 15+ years. When I am not busy closing deals I enjoy making the best use of my free time. I am an avid lover of most sports playing both hockey and baseball until recently and continue to love watching sports and lifting weights. I workout daily and try to stay fit and live a healthy lifestyle. I also am a huge fan of Electronic Dance Music. As a former DJ spinning progressive house music in NJ and NYC, I continue to love going to music festivals, concerts and dance clubs when the situation presents itself. I also have a love and fascination with the weather. Feel free to ask me if rain is in the forecast! When I am not busy, I also enjoy relaxing on the water. I am an avid fisherman, love boating and love the beach. As a native of the Jersey Shore, I am always one to soak up the sun and let the waves crash into my toes. Most importantly I am a loyal and honest individual who loves his family and values his friendships.

2. What brings you to Buzzvil?

I was extremely fortunate to find Buzzvil and I am grateful for being a part of this great company and awesome team. Buzzvil sparked my interest from the beginning because of its unique value proposition to both users and publishers. I shared the same core values of dreaming big, executing on one’s goals, and shared in the vision needed to build a successful company and hard working yet fun team. I am continuously motivated because of the value Buzzvil can bring numerous people and businesses. Being able to sell a product that you believe in while having a great time with your co-workers makes coming to work everyday easier. Being able to share in a common goal of success with the people you care about makes this such a special place to work.

3. What is your role at Buzzvil?

Business Development Manager for the US and Global -  I solicit, pitch, negotiate and close Buzzscreen deals for the US and Global markets. I also help to manage the relationship once the Buzzscreen partner goes live to ensure we are maximizing the partnership’s potential and providing excellent service.

4. How does it feel to work at a startup? or advertising industry?

I love this industry and love working at a startup. The opportunity to build something brand new and be a pioneer is of great interest to me. Being a part of something that is unique, new, fresh, and provides value is one of the main reasons’ why Buzzvil is such a great place to work. The digital advertising world is ever-changing and is fast. As a lover of technology, being able to work in a fast paced and ever-changing environment makes our company exciting, innovative and fun!

5. Is there something that you can say “this is the best part being Buzzvillians”?

My favorite part of being a “Buzzvilian” is the company’s welcoming and friendly culture as well as the “work hard, play hard” attitude. Everyone here at Buzzvil is welcoming, friendly, fun and accepting. As a foreigner from the US, coming to Korea for the first time was extremely nerve wracking, even for someone who is very outgoing. Everyone at Buzzvil was extremely welcoming, friendly, helpful and fun. That company attitude allows the entire company to maintain a healthy desire to succeed while creating a fun and enjoyable work environment.

6. Do you have a personal goal or dream? If so, how does your experience at Buzzvil help you?

Early on in my adult life, my goals and dreams were aggressive. I wanted to make lots of money, have nice things, and be the boss. As I’ve grown as a person, my goals are more centered. Although I still strive for excellence and financial security, my ultimate goal is to live a healthy, full and balanced life. I am grateful for what I have in my life, my accomplishments as a person, and if success finds me then happiness will follow. Buzzvil has helped me because of its successful culture. I believe we are building a wonderful company that will succeed in many years to come. The ability for this company to work together to solve problems provides a great example of how to solve problems in one’s personal life. It is my sincere hope that I will be an integral and major part of Buzzvil’s continued success and it is an honor and a pleasure to help Buzzvil realize its goals while helping to fulfill my individual dreams.

Think Buzzvil is for you? Good. We're hiring!
