1. Tell us why you joined Zipongo.
I like the idea of improving people’s lives by helping them make wise choices about what they eat. Rewarding them for those choices, rather than making them feel guilty, is the best way to motivate people. With Zipongo, we can help change people’s relationship with food and make them confident that they can eat healthy.
2. What are you most proud of, personal or career-wise?
Personally, I’m most proud of my family, which includes our dog and snake. We know how to have fun and laugh. Professionally, I’m most proud of what I’ve contributed to my employers: my focus, dedication and skills.
3. What’s your favorite restaurant in San Francisco?
My favorite restaurant in San Francisco is Nopalito. All of their food is sustainable, locally sourced and organic. Their salads are always interesting and tasty.
4. Can you share something that ranks high on your bucket list?
Taking the train across the Nullarbor Plain in Australia. The Nullarbor Plain is the world’s largest piece of limestone, and the train across the Nullarbor is the longest straight section of railway in the world. The Nullarbor is treeless and arid, but there’s a chance to spot dingos, as well as right whales off the coast. And it’d be the perfect place to unplug from all electronic gear.
