1. Tell us why you joined Zipongo.
Zipongo is at the intersection of food and technology — something I’m very passionate about. I’ve personally experienced how diet can influence a person’s well-being, and I’m a firm believer in Zipongo’s mission. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to pursue my passion and make an impact on the daily lives of people at the same time.
2. What are you most proud of, personal or career-wise?
I deeply cherish the opportunities I’ve had to successfully tackle some extremely tough problems in complex industries like healthcare and automotive.
3. What’s your favorite restaurant in San Francisco?
San Francisco is fantastic for vegan and vegetarian food. One place that’s high on my list is Gracias Madre in the Mission. It’s a vegetarian Mexican restaurant that uses organic and local produce.
4. Can you share something that ranks high on your bucket list?
My father-in-law has a 1950s Ford Prefect that he’s owned for more than 25 years. I’d love to get my hands dirty and restore it, especially because it’s all mechanical (relative to most of today’s cars).
