The Interview

The thing I love most about my work is

The community. I've worked with tremendous developers and passionate problem solvers on both business and social justice problems around the world. I've participated in conferences in Brazil, meetups in New York, and engaged with the open-source community around the world.

With ThoughtWorks, I've visited

Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, Canada, France, and many cities in the US.

If I could fix one of the world's problems, I'd put my powers to use on behalf of

Healthcare. I have found interesting work in my industries, but I find healthcare to be the most personally rewarding. A good healthcare solution can have a profound and direct impact on lives, but unfortunately most of the world (and even the US) lacks good healthcare technology and solutions.
