Hi there! Since you're here, I'll assume you're a little curious about me. I'll give you a few details, and perhaps we'll talk soon :)
Currently, I work as a Software Engineer for Amazon Prime. I'm nearly finished with a several month long project where I wrote, tested, and launched a new software service that is called whenever customers place orders on amazon.com (a lot).
When I'm not at work, I enjoy growing—doing things such as building my health, answering difficult questions (e.g. "How can I be more effective?"), and discovering new information through podcasts like "The Tim Ferris Show", "Manager Tools", and "Entrepreneurs on Fire."
In the future, I envision becoming more of a leader. "People problems" interest me because (a) people are of ultimate importance, and (b) these problems are difficult, impactful, and rewarding to solve. I'm especially interested in effectiveness, lasting improvement, and enjoyment. I think my interests and strengths will pair well with leadership, but only hard work, reflection, and time will tell!
In the past…well there's a lot, but to start, here's my resume.
I'll leave you with some wisdom given to me by my current manager. Paraphrased:
Me: "I want to learn how others have solved this problem so I can 'stand on the shoulders of giants'."
Manager: "How will you solve problems that have never been solved before if you've never practiced? Try solving problems on your own first, then turn to external resources and others to improve your solution and learn."
