Our Team

We are an eclectic mix of industry veterans who love our work but we also pride ourselves on a range of colorful interests outside the office. We've got a pilot, a point guard, a synchronized swimmer, a spelling bee champ, equestriennes, a rockstar (or three), authors, coaches, and a clutch of karaoke kings and queens. If you want to add your talents to the mix apply here.

Leadership

Tom Seery
Founder and CEO

Tom is the founder and CEO at RealSelf, which started out in 2006 as a dream to build the TripAdvisor to the face, body and smile. This moved a big step toward reality after securing the support of his wife, and financial backing by the founder of Expedia and Zillow, Rich Barton and other prominent angel investors. In the office you can find Tom working in the open, engaging with the team, and pushing everyone to get closer to our community members.

Scott Brooks
VP, Product

Scott leads our product, analytics, and UX teams to produce the best community-powered platform for our users. Despite holding software patents in low regard, he is rumored to be an inventor of key products conceived while at Expedia and Zillow. Outside the office he strives to create his neighborhood's largest garden and tries (but mostly fails) to look cool while skiing.

Maureen Ezekwugo
EVP, Doctor Community

Maureen is responsible for leading RealSelf's growth and revenue strategy. She has built a talented team who works with both doctors and world-class brands to help instill confidence in the consumer's journey through unique social and content marketing programs. While profitable revenue is one goal, Maureen's true passion and values center around excellence, authenticity and helping others.

Anthony Mendonca
VP, Engineering

Anthony leads a great team of creative engineers and developers who are constantly iterating on improving RealSelf. He's built up 15 years of experience, starting in the early days of the cloud at Berkley Labs and Platform Computing (IBM) and then moving onto consumer software at Intuit and various startups. Anthony enjoys the dynamic atmosphere of the Seattle start up community and working with his talented team members. When he's not in front of a computer, he's behind a camera making short films.

Alicia Nakamoto
VP, Community

Alicia is responsible for building and motivating the worlds most trusted community around any cosmetic procedure journey. She discovered the power of consumer reviews while working at Amazon and strives to bring that same transparency for members researching on RealSelf to make confident choices. Off hours you might find her running, testing out new Seattle restaurants or in front of Trader Joe's selling daisy scout cookies.

Alan Treanor
Chief Analytics Officer

Alan leads the company’s efforts to use data to build new products for the web and improve our services for consumers and doctors. When he’s not exhorting colleagues to test their assumptions with data, he’s on the soccer pitch testing how many goals he can miss before he’s asked to leave the team.

Matt Woodward
Chief Technology Officer

Matt leads the development and operation of RealSelf's systems. Matt repeatedly finds himself at the intersection of business and technology, supporting enterprises with systems ranging from mobile applications that fit in your hand to e-commerce search and transactional systems spanning multiple datacenters across the globe. After hours, you'll find Matt at a hockey game, snowboarding or, on the rare clear Seattle night, observing the universe through a telescope.
