What do you do at Kno2?
Despite the job title, I tend to wear many hats here at Kno2. Currently, I’m leading the day-to-day work efforts for our web portal upgrade, along with work on other client apps such as Kno2 Desktop.
What motivates you to wake up and go to work every day?
What gets me up in the morning is the long creative leash I’ve been granted here at Kno2. I would argue most of the tech industry would look at my age and say “he’s young and likely inexperienced. Therefore, he shouldn’t be in a position to make important decisions”. Fortunately, though, that hasn’t at all been the case.
What do you enjoy most outside of work?
I enjoy working on cars, hiking, playing video games, running through flight simulators, and reading about macro- economics.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I shoot a compound bow 2-4 days a week after work. After warming up, I can group three arrows within an inch or two of each other at 50 yards.
