I grew up in Oakland, Calif., went to school in Scotland, Norway, and Missouri, and have lived and worked in Copenhagen and San Francisco. Otis, a spirited terrier mix, has been my sidekick for the past nine years. I am a professional student of sorts, business development is problem-solving at its core. I love detailed API documentation and a good literature review.

Outside of work I read a lot, run, go to shows, watch documentaries, seek out excellent IPAs, attend City Arts & Lectures, hangout at Bookswap, and organize field trips for Ramen Club.
