I'd like the twin cities to have a healthy tech ecosystem. Can we learn anything from silicon valley? Help me figure that out. I'll prepare some remarks from my own experiences, and leave time for discussion and Q&A.
I have worked at twin cities startups (Net Perceptions, Orasi Medical, code42, Blue Shift Labs), at larger companies (Google, Amazon), and as a fellow in the GroupLens research lab at the University of Minnesota. I was a data scientist at Pinterest for six years. I lived in San Francisco 2013-2016.
I am also a trumpet player and composer.
