Summary

Currently pursuing my Master's in Stanford specializing in the skills required to make for a great Product Manager when I rejoin the workforce. My previous work experience at Microsoft taught me to look at the customer's needs as the spine of any great product. I want to leverage my time here at Stanford and my prior experience to shape great products in both popularity and sales!
