What led you to a career in tech?
The three basic drivers of life led me to a career in tech. The need to become my best self, the need to belong and be accepted in a community of like-minded intellectuals and the need to earn a better standard of living.
What does a typical day look like for you?
A typical day for me starts with me checking the technical status of all products, quickly checking for latest industry trends and market news, grabbing a cup of coffee, then settling down to the day’s activities, depending on the nature of the job to be done for the day which might be in form of product analysis, roadmapping, or more strategic functions like working on new product discoveries etc.
Advice to your younger self?
My advice to my younger self is to stay focused and driven. Avoid distractions. Discover yourself and every other thing will fall in place.
If you could invite anyone to join the Black Valley community, who and why?
