Why did you join Flybits?
While researching and learning about Flybits, I noticed a forward thinking organization working to solve complex problems. Flybits demonstrated through conferences, whitepapers and other online publication collateral, areas of work in new technologies to solve new generations of problems. The history of Flybits stemming from a research lab is an indication of perfect harmony between business and academia when it comes to R&D.

What do you like about your current role?
I feel excited when trying to solve problems or think of solutions to help our customers succeed, and that’s a big part in the role I play. I also enjoy being able to be on both sides of the fence of technical and business roles. I love that I have the support and opportunity to be inspired and envision ideas and solutions. I like the technology stack and ingenuity of our platform and our product. And most importantly, the most valuable asset of Flybits is its people in various teams.

What’s a trip that changed you, and why?
I was on a business trip to Australia once, and I thought this is the farthest corner of the Earth that I had reached. I expected a very different impression and a bigger culture shock, and I understood then how the World is interconnected.

Who would play you in a movie about your life?
Keanu Reeves

If you could give your younger self a piece of advice, what would it be?
Start investing and saving at a much younger age, have a vision that is 10 years ahead, sometimes 5 years is short sighted.
