About

Head ShotHello and welcome.

I’m an Italian kid from RI, went to Cornell and HBS but recovered from it. New York ad guy for a while, ended up CEO of Ogilvy & Mather Interactive when the Web happened, serial entrepreneur since then.

I’m pretty active on Twitter, facebook, Last.fm and Yelp. I keep a Tumblr lifestream, my LinkedIn profile is here (as a general rule, I only link with people I’ve met in person.)

THE OPINIONS EXPRESSED HERE ARE MY OWN, AND NOT NECESSARILY THOSE OF MY COMPANY, IT’S EMPLOYEES, INVESTORS, OR ANYBODY ELSE. Capish?

UPDATE:

I’ve been posting less original content here and more on Dad-O-Matic lately, plus directing lots of content from all over the web onto facebook. If you’re interested and on facebook, that’s probably the best place to friend and follow me. For those of you not on facebook, you can get all of my online content from a tumblr site I’ve created here, and which you can get to via http://troiano.me. You can subscribe to that feed in your RSS reader here.

Thanks for listening, and please let me know what you like and what you don’t.
