Show my name on the attendees list for events I am attending:
The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
"Thinking about the back half of the chessboard"
I was born and raised in Portland, OR.
I am half Indian, half Viking.
I like to use both sides of my brain.
In a former life I was an investment banker.
I'm not a designer by education, but I've designed and developed multiple products.
Today, I am an MBA student at Wharton business school in Philadelphia.
I am also a classically trained chef, and I cooked professionally at Bouley in New York City.
I was attacked by a shark, and have the scars to show for it (but all my parts still work!).
I think "profit" and "social impact" can be part of the same sentence.
