Q&A

Describe your company and how long you have been there.

Rightside is all about helping you tell your story, your way. We believe that everyone can find opportunity on the right side of the dot — for storytelling, for commerce, for innovation, and for you. I've been with Rightside for a few months, learning about all things related to the domain industry — I love it!

 

Can you tell us about how your service or product helps deliver value to your customers?

As we grow beyond the dot coms and dot nets, Rightside’s new personalized domain names and services can tell your story in a way that’s as unique as you are. And with our solutions platform, it’s easy for resellers, registries, registrars, and domain investors to build and grow their businesses.

 

What are your thoughts on the new TLDs?

Rightside is one of the pioneers of new TLDs. With the internet landscape changing, I see lots of upside opportunity for investment in new TLDs. With so many social platforms to choose from, new TLDs like .live, .news and .games help communicate to your communities on every platform and drive consistent traffic to e-commerce sites with shorten URLs.

 

What fact about you would surprise people?

I sing karaoke — a lot.

 

What was one of your biggest "Aha!" moments in life?

Success comes with hard work, seeking new opportunities and understanding how to prove your results. Nothing is handed to you.

 

How does your career compare to what you envisioned in your youth?

I went to college to become a school teacher. Now I create demand for high growth sales teams. Completely different.

 

If you had fifteen extra minutes each day, what would you do with them?

Play ball with my dog.

 

Name 3 things you can't travel without.

Toothbrush, mascara and a fancy cocktail dress.

 

Where is your favourite place to escape?

The ocean.

 

What object would you put in a time capsule that best represents who you are today?

A poem.
