I helped build LinkedIn. I love building software that runs large scalable useful websites, while working with awesome people. I'm currently working on LinkedIn Publishing and Sharing aka content creation. I have also made a small handful of angel investments and am glad to share my experience in Software and Entrepreneurship with my budding entrepreneur friends.
I work on Content products at LinkedIn with an amazing team, bringing insights to our members and making LinkedIn more useful to them everyday. I also work with a handful of tech leads from across the company to drive horizontal projects and keep us doing our best on tech.
Doing what I enjoy the most, working with teams building systems and tackling big technical problems, and having a lot of fun at the same time. These days I help out on social activity and content infrastructure at LinkedIn.
