My grandma tells me, "When I was your age, we didnt have computers, cell phones, and tablets," and I think to myself, "What a shame!" I enjoy technology and watching it grow and evolve with our society. I believe it has an amazing power to spread knowledge and connect people. I sometimes worry that the smartest individuals of my generation are working on the wrong projects (mobile apps with a million fart noises). But we'll figure it out!
I like technology and people but also like to get away from it all and get lost in a good book, nature or fierce competition. I've been reading a lot of Neil Gaiman lately and enjoy having to be an active reader to understand and follow his mystical stories. I enjoy reading about climate change and recently saw it in action in Alaska. I watched glaciers calve into the Aialik Bay and heard about their record mild winter(this thing is real people). Space has become a new interest of mine: exoplanets, life on Titan, the Big Bang, etc. I like to excercise and you can find me doing anything from competitive, organized soccer in a league to pushups and yoga in my bedroom before bed.
I work in San Francisco at KISSmetrics where we provide real, actionable metrics for our customers. I'm ecstatic about our emphasis on the people behind the metrics and our ability to drill down so a company can see exactly who has done what.
“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.”
