I am a startup CTO and have created a career from continually bringing products and services from inception to market - both at small companies and big companies. I co-founded a startup during college and it was acquired by eBay. I led moonshot programs at eBay's startup incubator. Then, I joined Amazon to adapt Amazon Go technology into Whole Foods Market across the United States. I also worked as a Solutions Architect within Amazon Web Services focusing on helping startups leverage their suite of machine learning services. I am bringing all those learnings back to my startups and wishing to share them with others along the way.

I have excelled at many roles from engineer, to technical program manager, to solutions architect, to engineering manager and CTO. I enjoy conversations about career possibilities and career growth.

My motto is "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."
