"I feel there is nothing more inspiring than working with brilliant, motivated founders, deeply committed to making this world a better place, sculpting the realities they have envisioned, one hit at a time. I enjoy this partnership the most - the honesty, camaraderie, and the shared mission.
What I like the most about my work is the prospect of meeting and deeply interacting with multiple such people every week. If that doesn't inspire one, don't know what will!"
