Q: Where you are from?
Q: If you knew it was going to be your last meal, what would you eat?

Q: What led you to pursue a career in your current field, and how has your professional journey evolved over time?
Growing up in a household where my dad worked in tech startups and traveling around with him made me fall in love with that environment and eventually follow in his footsteps.
Q: What was the most challenging project you worked on in your career? How did you overcome any obstacles to achieve a successful outcome?
Early on in my sales career, I was tasked with building an SDR program to support the APAC region. Due to time and language barriers, finding success was hard at first but utilizing the partnership and marketing resources we had in APAC, we were able to bring in the region’s first customers.
Q: What motivates you to come to work every day, and how do you stay engaged and enthusiastic about your job?
2 things mainly: first, being able to help companies reach their goals, and the second being be able to work with my dad every day after watching him work his tail off my whole life has been an honor.
Q: Can you share a defining moment in your life or career that has shaped who you are as a person (rather than a worker)?
Like so many other kids growing up, I wanted to play professional sports. Soccer was my sport and after I was done playing in college, having to come to terms with what to do next tested me and made me the person I am today.
Q: How do you maintain a work-life balance, and what activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?
As I mentioned above, big soccer guy so being able to play in adult leagues with friends keeps me sane!
Q: What do you hope the future of work looks like? (Please give an example of a challenge you see today, and what a solution might look like, or a specific thing you hope for in the future workplace)?
Not sure if this is really a solution to this but I really hope we get back to a place where employees/employers have some sort of mutual respect for one another. Growing up, I always remember being very close with people who worked with my dad, in fact, I still call some of them Aunt and Uncle today!
Q: What advice would you give to someone starting out in your field or looking to grow to their utmost potential?
Don’t be afraid to fail… the act of trying and failing will teach you more than anything else in the world.
