Entrepreneur, Align Innovations
My family and I escaped a revolutionary war and came to the US with one bag and $500 in our pockets. We struggled to learn a new language, different culture and succeed. This built a foundation of perseverance, resiliency, gratitude and dedication. It also enabled me at a young age, to build a tech company that was sold. I have a natural entrepreneurial thought process to explore the possibilities, and find a better way of doing things. I am also a strategic and passionate leader with over 15 years experience. I work with teams to inspire creativity to drive change and create the future through innovation strategies that drive conscious re-investments & revenue. As a leader, I thrive on bringing unique, creative and passionate people together to develop game changer ideas and execute. With a strong commitment and passion for motivating and inspiring, spoke at Tedx on the “The Value of Deep Human Connection in a High Tech World”, and also various innovation events, schools, coding camps and shark tanks events to encourage careers in STEM.
