Client Services Manager
It has been a great pleasure to work directly with our ticketing partners across the country since 2006. I draw on my prior experience as an Internet technology professional and box office manager to help our clients. I enjoy learning about their businesses and use that knowledge to make us smarter and our services better.

He holds a B.F.A. from Syracuse University. Michael is currently the Co-Chair of the Junior Board of The Public Theater and previously sat on the Leadership Committee for Playwrights Horizons.
Director, Product Development
It is rewarding to work with our clients to understand their needs and translate them into products that help them save time, reach a wider audience, increase income, and manage front- and back-of-house experiences. Before joining OvationTix in 2013, I worked on a range of products including digital payment services (American Express), streaming music (Napster), and fundraising solutions (Blackbaud). I enjoy uncovering the challenges that customers face daily, and devising innovative solutions that help achieve their goals.
Director, Software Engineering
I lead a team of talented software engineers to continually improve OvationTix so that our clients’ needs are met. I graduated from Stony Brook University and spent about five years building robust-enterprise Web and reporting applications at UBS Financial Services. I have been applying my skill set to OvationTix since 2011. I enjoy applying technologies to deliver a superior user experience.

Chief Executive Officer
I joined the company in January 2001. I spent many years prior financing media and technology companies while serving on not-for-profit boards and enjoying the arts in my spare time. I am fortunate to have a career that allows me to combine my passions for entertainment and business, and to collaborate with great clients and coworkers.
In 1999, in midst of searching for ways to promote online ticket sales, I cofounded TheaterMania with producer Joe Corcoran. Beforehand I spent several years in the music industry. It is rewarding to be part of a growing and evolving technology company, and a privilege to connect audiences and the arts through our work.
Chief Technology Officer
I lead our incredibly talented Product Development and Technology teams to facilitate understanding of our clients’ needs and deliver an intuitive, reliable, secure software platform. Before joining the team in 2013, I oversaw Internet development for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and Time, Inc. I embrace each opportunity to improve products and services for our clients to allow them to move forward in an ever-changing digital world.
