I was a Global PM on the Startup Business Development team at AWS. My team partners with start-up organizations and their portfolio companies around the world to grow, connect and become successful with Amazon. We are a start-up’s first touch point to the entire Amazon family like Launchpad Alexa, Amazon Media Group and more.
I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania (College and Wharton) focusing on business, international politics, economics and law. I spent 60% of my spare time leading a student organization focused on breaking the poverty cycle in West Philadelphia. Through that organization, LIFT, I also founded Penn’s Poverty Awareness Week.
Hong Kong is my home. I move a lot and my most recently took 2 suitcases and 3 boxes with me from New York City to Seattle. I like Seattle (in particular, the outdoors, art-focused parties, coffee, yoga and overall city vibe) but I do miss going to immersive theaters and wandering around the big, bright city aimlessly on empty nights.
I write a lot. And paint. Traveling, new experiences and meeting passionate people drive me. I love creating things with my hands and mind. Easiest way to keep me engaged is by staying conceptual. There’s something so romantic about philosophy, thoughts and exploration of the unknown.
Three words to describe me would be Curious, Driven and Excitable. I have a lot of questions, and I cannot wait to find, learn or create the answers. Nothing is ever set in stone but I know my journey forward will leverage my passion and expertise in process, design and technology to solve big, global and complicated problems.
