At the most basic level, I love building things. I knew this from a young age, when I could be found using Legos to build trebuchets and crossbows (with functioning magazine and bolt action!). Now I primarily channel this passion through product & software engineering.
Having worked as both a software engineer and a product manager, I can empathize with the competing values that go into creating a product. Personally, I'm a big believer that design, usability, and functionality are all co-equal ingredients of any great product. I'm also a proponent of "going big", whether that's working on audacious products, setting lofty goals, or running bold tests.
Although I loved working in both those roles, I knew my journey would eventually lead to entrepreneurship. The uncertainty is energizing! We'll see where it takes me.
