What are you passionate about?
People who use technology to solve our biggest problems – especially the intractable, hardest to solve – the ones that make people’s lives substantially better. There is a handful of amazing entrepreneurs giving their time to create value in a very palpable way. I would love to help them grow until I’m ready to be one of these entrepreneurs myself.
Where would you go in a time machine?
The future. Not only because I am curious, but also because I think I’d be very pleased with what I would see. Even with the challenges we face today, I’m very positive about our collective ability to solve problems and innovate. I’d be thrilled to see firsthand the amazing things we come up with a few hundred years from now.
What do you want to learn more about? What’s your next focus?
Tech, tech, tech. Being a business major, it is a whole new world to unveil. I’m particularly interested in blockchain, micro-services, open source, autonomous transportation, and the awesome uses of AI we haven’t figured out yet.
