- Research Program Mentor

MBA at Dartmouth College


Entrepreneurship, Start-ups, Business, Product Management, Compensation, Agile Product Development, Chickens


My career has centered around the the use of technology to solve thorny problems. Those problems ranges from high-performance data storage, to employee compensation, to the process of buy/selling a home. I love working with humans to solve their problems in elegant and satisfying ways. Personally I enjoy using my brain and my body in as many different ways as possible. As a result you are just as likely to find me running around Seattle, in the mountains with my skis, or in the pub on trivia night.
