Why do you do what you do?
“Marketing can be amusing, engaging, and educational or misdirected, inappropriate, and annoying. I want to help marketers do more of the former and less of the latter. With today’s volumes of data, need for millisecond responses and deep insights we have to give marketers technology that is powerful, super fast, and easy to use. I love a challenge.”
