What’s the most rewarding aspect of the job you do?

Meeting with founders and engaging with them around their ideas and businesses inspires me everyday. I am always learning from amazing driven people. Then I can attempt to give this accumulated knowledge back to the next founder I meet.

What qualities do you most admire in other people?

Intelligence and the ability to communicate are an incredibly powerful combination. The creation of great ideas, the sharing and debating of great ideas will produce the best solutions. Intelligence has real depth beyond book smarts.
