Favorite Bowdoin memory (that we can print): Each morning rowing on the New Meadows when the sun came up over the trees and instantly thawed out all of us sitting there shivering in our unisuits

Greatest influence: Teachers, professors, and counselors I’ve had over the years, as well as many people in my industry that I admire.

I can’t live without: Having a purpose, whether in work or my personal life (hopefully both).

The coolest thing about my job is: I get to create things on a daily basis and learn about how to build a business from scratch

Last blog I read:

If you call me in 12 years, you’ll find me: Managing a web startup in New York City.
