At Astronomer, I've worn many different hats but all have been close to our core product. Namely I've done stints as a Platform Engineer, Product Manager, Growth Manager, and Sales Engineer.
Recently, I've been focused on scaling out our product strategy and working on the go-to-market for a new product offering. I am deeply embedded in engagements with some of our biggest enterprise prospects to architect solutions and translate enterprise organizational needs into strategic product decisions.
I went to Bowdoin College, where I studied Chemistry and Physics. I was pre-med, so much of my time was spent in the scientific realm, but Bowdoin's liberal arts philosophy allowed me to spend sigificant time focusing on Music Theory, Spanish, English Literature, and Film Studies. I loved being able to be broad in my academic focus- it prepared me well for my current job, in which I split my time between the technical and human sides of the business.
On campus, I was a member of the varsity football team, a captain of the club alpine ski team, and played guitar and keys in a band.
Sample Coursework: Organic Chemistry I and II, Music Theory I and II, Quantum Chemistry and Spectroscopy, Film Studies, Astrophysics, Chemical Thermodynamics and Kinetics, Multivariate Calculus, Transfigurations of Song, Linear Algebra, Quantum Physics and Special Relativity, Songwriting and Song Analysis.
