I am a simple Aussie boy, born and raised in Sydney who has now been living in my adopted hometown of New York since 2004. I love my wife, cars, rugby league, basketball and two little boys. I never say NO to beer or pizza. I am huge fan of technology companies and am passionate about growing cool businesses. My friends also say I am beautiful (on the inside).
During the day I am a business development and strategy wonk who passionately helps internet companies grow faster. Since 2012 I've been part of the awesome Weebly team, leading strategy, business development and partnerships. We help millions world's entrepreneurs succeed by making online presence, ecommerce and marketing a little easier and more approachable. As a passionate Weebly user and fan for years, I knew deep down it was only a matter of time before I joined the team. It has been a great ride and is fun every day.
Previously, I was an executive at ZipList which was successfully sold to Conde Nast. There I worked on business development, produce development and strategy. We were small team that accomplished a lot. Prior to that I was on the senior team at Register.com which was a private equity owned domain registrar (like GoDaddy) where I lead the reseller channel and also had roles in online marketing and business development. When we sold Register to publicly traded Web.com I joined that team for a while to help the partnerships team.
I don't like to sleep so in 2013 I founded A07 Online Media with a few mates. We buy traditional web businesses that can use some love. We've grown a lot and we now have a team that helps us continue to grow.
I am also a devoted husband to my wonderful wife Joelle. We met in Europe in 2002 and we haven’t looked back since. She is the best, the love of my life. Add two little nuggets (Johnny and Jamie) and life is pretty good.
