On a mission to make work suck less.
A lifelong learner passionate about product, culture, and beer. 😁🍻
y journey has been a constant cycle of discovery, interest, engrossment, attainment, and exploration. I started off as a mechanical engineer, and eventually found myself in the field of product management. I attribute this to my love of learning and my desire to never stop in my acquisition of knowledge. When I discover a new area of interest, I tend to go very deep into it in a short period of time. I read books on the subject, practice the skills however I can, and once I attain a certain level of adeptness, I emerge to explore and begin anew. I cannot fathom myself in a position where I am not constantly learning.
I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades, despite the negative connotation that that phrase may have. Most people assume that generalists have skill sets that are "a mile wide and an inch deep," but in my own experience, and at the risk of sounding conceited, my knowledge and skills in any particular area is usually deeper than the average person in that field. This tendency towards variety is what ultimately brought me to the field of product management. As an engineer, designer, and consultant, I couldn't think of a better role in which I could bring all these skills together and work with others who share the same interests.
Do work that is meaningful to you and that has a positive impact on the world. Avoid work that only has profit as a motive.
Tell the truth, even when it's uncomfortable. Always do right by the others. Work together to ensure that everyone is treated fairly.
Every challenge is an opportunity for growth. Embrace failure and learn from it.
Challenge the status quo. Learn and adapt. Don't do something just because everyone else does it; do it because it makes sense.
Never be afraid to speak your mind. Be the voice for those who may not be comfortable doing so. Advocate for the underprivileged.
Begin every relationship with 100% trust in the other person. Assume the best intentions until proven otherwise.
