I'm from Seattle and live in NYC.
I most recently started Birthdate Candles. Our candles have been featured everywhere from the Today Show to BuzzFeed (check out our reviews).
Previously, I was director of international for Wealthsimple, where I led our US launch and US/UK product development. Before that, I was on the original team at Tilt before it was acquired by Airbnb. I built Tilt Pro, which powered some of the most successful online pre-order launches 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.
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 podcast interview I did for "You People with Kareem Rahma"
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.
