Antonio is CEO and co-founder of
AdGrok,
a VC-backed startup founded with the express purpose of
helping small businesses do online marketing. Before AdGrok, Antonio
was a research scientist at a Bay Area digital marketing agency,
writing bidding algorithms for online advertising exchanges. Prior to
marketing, he was a pricing quant on Goldman Sachs’ credit and equity
trading floors, modeling credit-default swaps and various other
weapons of financial destruction. He arrived on Wall Street as a
young, naive physics Ph.D. student, and regrets the day he ever read
Liar’s Poker. When not grokking, he tries to play squash and sail his
26-foot sloop Moksha.
