He started investing in intellectual property and domain names in 1995 and helped start the first online domain brokerage business on the internet in 1996. Success includes participating in the industry's first domain name sale for over $1 million dollars with the sale of Wallstreet.com and the industries first $2 million dollar plus domain sale with the sale of Autos.com in 1999.
