I LIKE STORIES

Anything that's important can also be interesting. Too often we get lost in complexity & jargons, but I feel true intelligence lies in the ability to condense complex concepts and transmit them in a way the layman can grasp. Needless to say, I'm a big fan of science fiction, comics and nerdy memes.

I BELIEVE IN DATA

The best tales are told by data, but they need to be drawn out. Having spent tons of time dealing with large amounts of data, I've come to understand that data never lies,  but it can easily misguide. And that's where the modern day data Sherlock comes in - to single out relevant bits from an entangled mess. 

I TRY TO BE A REALIST

I take pride in what I know and do, but I'm aware of mountains of knowledge out there I'll never even come close to scaling. I used to struggle with the imposter syndrome often, but now that I know there's always a slope of enlightenment out there, I can somehow push myself to crawl through the valley of despair.
