Seth is co-founder and CEO of DJZ, a new media company focused on electronic dance music and DJ culture.
Seth is also an active angel investor and advisor to startups like Turntable.fm and Gumroad. He started his entrepreneurial career at age 7 selling kites on Cape Cod, and grew up in Boston, where he inherited a deep love for the Celtics, Red Sox, Patriots, and professional wrestling (Jimmy Superfly Snooka in particular). He studied Theatre at Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan and then went to Columbia University in New York, where he majored in Literature.
Seth started his first company, an early Internet advertising agency called SiteSpecific, in 1995. He sold it to a bigger company a few years later. In 1999 he watched the first Internet bubble inflate and then pop, as Entrepreneur in Residence at Flatiron Partners. Over the past ten years, Seth has built a number of successful companies, including Majestic Research, the first investment research company based on live consumer Internet data, and SocialMedia.com, which developed the first social advertising technology on Facebook. Seth is passionate about helping entrepreneurs realize their dreams. In 2007 he created Pier 38 in San Francisco, a bustling hub of startup activity that gave birth to a number of successful startups. He has also been an active advisor to the US State Department Global Entrepreneurship Program, with whom he has travelled to Egypt and Turkey to foster entrepreneurship.
After living in NYC for almost twenty years, Seth moved to Marin, California, where he now lives with his wife and two sons. If he could climb Bolinas Fairfax every day on his bike, listening to David Bowie, he would.
