What do you do when you’re not selling your soul to Ripple?
I enjoy relaxing and letting off some steam by playing video games. I love getting to explore a virtual world. Reading is also a hobby of mine – especially when it’s on a hammock with a beer next to me! I also really enjoy hiking and biking around the SLC area.
Favorite (legal) activity in Salt Lake City: Mountain biking!
Favorite restaurant in Salt Lake City: Lucky 13
One fact about you: I share a birthday (4/27) with my father and brother (not twins).
Why you chose Ripple: I’ve been super passionate about neuroscience, specifically neural engineering, since my experiences at the Center for Neurotechnology during my undergrad. I was fascinated by the idea of interfacing the human brain with machines. Once I finished my masters degree it was a no brainer, I wanted to work for a company working on the latest and greatest neurotechnology!
What you enjoy about Ripple: For me, Ripple is more than just work. It’s a culture of caring and compassion. Moving to SLC after school was really intimidating, but I was welcomed with open arms into a wonderful group of people who care for one another and their work!
