I'm from Seattle and live in NYC.
I most recently started Birthdate Candles. We've sold more than 50,000 candles (check out our reviews). Our candles have been featured everywhere from the Today Show to BuzzFeed.
Here's some of my creative work:
I produced two episodes of a comedy variety show called "Hey, How Ya Doin?" — with creator/star Ashok Kondabolu and guests John Hodgman and Aparna Nancherla
A story I wrote for New York magazine about India's budding religious e-commerce industry
A piece I wrote for The Caravan magazine on Indian users of Quora
A very fun podcast interview I did for "You People with Kareem Rahma"
Previously, I was director of international for Wealthsimple, where I led US and UK product development. Before that, I was on the original team at Tilt (acquired by Airbnb). I built Tilt Pro, which powered some of the most successful online pre-order campaigns ever: for Soylent, Away, Lytro, Cruise, and more.
Before Tilt, I co-founded a startup called FamilyLeaf with seed investment from Y Combinator. We were featured in the New York Times and elsewhere, and were acquired by Origami Labs in early 2013.
I graduated from Columbia University with a bachelor's degree in computer science. You can learn a bit more about me in a (dated) profile in the Seattle Times or my interview with the "You People" podcast. I had the best/luckiest first job ever.
