I’m a California native moving to New York City!

My former manager describes me as a “…smart, passionate, authentic, curious, and driven…” individual.

Previously, I spent 2.5 years working at RightSignature, a bootstrapped, SaaS, e-signature company located in Santa Barbara, CA. In October of 2014, RightSignature was acquired by Citrix Systems, a multinational software specializing in virtualization, networking, and (more recently) SaaS technologies.

In July 2016, I left my role and team to take a year long sabbatical. During that year, I lived on a kibbutz in rural Israel and backpacked alone through South America. Check out the volunteer tab for more details and photos.
