Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

I grew up as technology around me boomed. I was playing with Legos when the Internet first arrived at my home. The usual battles over the telephone as a teenager were instead replaced with instant messaging systems and online communities, where I could easily interact with the world. As I began college and had more commitments, I got a smartphone, where I could organize my academic and social life so easily. Instead of going to medical school, I decided to become a bioengineer, because I wanted to innovate in biomedicine. I had become used to changes, to always making things better, because that’s how the world changed for my generation. So, I wanted to be a part of that.

While pursuing my PhD in bioengineering, I also explored entrepreneurship and technology commercialization. Working at University of Washington showed me that I preferred to not just innovate, but help get exciting technologies out there. This realization brought me to Xinova. I work with inventors daily, and help identify solutions which can become exciting new technologies. It’s so rewarding and humbling to work with innovators all over the world who are always working on the cutting edge.
Outside life as a Xinovian, I love to enjoy the great Seattle outdoors, whether it’s skiing in the winter or running in the summer. I also enjoy salsa, west coast swing, and ballroom dancing, and would love to one day be in a musical.
