San Francisco, CA
I’m an entrepreneur and software engineer, passionate about building products and technology for good. Having worked on a number of startups, my most recent venture led to an acquisition by Airbnb. With a knack for creating clarity in complicated and nuanced challenges, I work with teams to pragmatically make progress towards meaningful outcomes. My broad interest lies in furthering society in a sustainable way, and I’m specifically motivated by opportunities in environmental sustainability, social equity, human connectedness, and health. Over the past decade, I’ve worked with a range of technologies to address real-world needs: education in Delhi’s slums, secure citizen journalism in war zones, and immigration reform. Today, I work on trust, inclusion, and belonging at Airbnb.
I provide personal mentorship and coaching to founders and engineers around motivation, identifying and leveraging strengths, career development, and team relationships. I help companies with topics related to entrepreneurship and engineering. Value I can add is to help teams break down problems, focus efforts, test hypotheses, raise funding, and ultimately build great products and scale. I understand how to evolve organizations and technology with changing business needs, having built teams and designed systems at companies across stages.
I donate all proceeds to charity.
