What’s the best thing about your job?

Versatility. Because of the nature of my job, I get to cooperate with all the departments at Triplemint.

What are three career lessons you’ve learned thus far?

  1. If you are waiting to be prepared to meet a challenge, you will never accomplish anything.
  2. Maintain your curiosity, and always be open to learning something new.
  3. Learn to delegate. As a manager of people, projects, and products, this is a constant struggle for me.

How do you balance your career and family?

Most of all by being realistic and not trying to be everything for everybody. I religiously prioritize both my short term and long term to-do list and organize my days according to that. I also practice little self-checks during the day and never shy away from rescheduling non-essential activities when I’d rather have ‘me time’ or just want to relax with my family.

If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see?

I have so many, but these are the ones on the top of my list:

  • Building of the Great Pyramid of Giza
  • Magna Carta signed by King John at Runnymede
  • Leonardo Da Vinci painting The Last Supper
  • Gutenberg using his printing press the very first time
  • The Gettysburg Address
  • The Wright Brother’s first flight
