1. What was your first job in technology?
I co-founded the McKinley Group which created the popular Magellan Search
Engine which sold to Excite in 1996.
2. Who has been your most significant mentor? Why?
I did not have any one mentor that was particularly significant in my life.
Along the way I've learned from many different people. I don't believe it
is necessary to have 1 or 2 mentors, but rather that we make sure that we learn as
much as possible from those who are effective and have been successful.
3. What has been your greatest challenge and what strategies did you use to overcome
Becoming myself and remaining true to my
dreams have been my greatest challenges in life. When I determined my
goals I decided that I would go for them regardless of whether people
believed in them or not. I believe it is important to never give up -
little by little you can accomplish what you dream.
