James Keating

A little on my background:

I grew up near Scranton, PA, lived in and around New York City for 14 years, and now am in Los Angeles with my wife Verena Schenk and our dog.

I studied Electrical Engineering, yet didn’t use it professionally, instead I found my calling in sales and marketing.  I earned my MBA in marketing and finance.  If we know each other professionally, please see my profile on LinkedIn (James Keating) and feel free to connect with me.  However, If I don’t know you, I won’t confirm the connection.  I occasionally tweet, so you can also reach me @JamesKeating

Work: I’m at Internet Brands as the General Manager of the Home and Shopping Divisions.  Our sites include:

I also helped to build ShopWiki, first heading up marketing and internationalization throughout Europe, then served as the General Manager after we were acquired by Oversee.net. Before Internet Brands, I lead product and technology for Luxury Link, where I also brought that company into the UK market.

Travel: This is a passion of mine and wish I had more time to run around the world.  I’ve been to a long list of countries, and 48 of 50 states.  I picked up photography mid way through, and now am working on improving my skills and finding new places to travel to.  For countries, I’ve been to:
