About I am Managing Director at the Verus Entertainment Group. Previously, I was CEO of FiveOneNine Games, a social gaming joint venture between The E.W. Scripps Company and Capitol Broadcasting. Before FiveOneNine, I was GM, International Publishing at Playdom/Disney, where I built and led the team responsible for bringing Playdom’s games to Europe, Latin America, Russia and India. I began my career in gaming by co-founding Merscom, which started as a value game publisher, pivoted to become one of the top-5 casual game developers and pivoted again to social gaming in 2009. I then initiated and negotiated the sale of Merscom to Playdom in 2010.
