1) One of the most meaningful accomplishments to me was the delivery of a patent pending, award winning personalized recommendation engine, Sherpa – named after the Himalayan mountain guides to drive listing quality 300+ million live listings from 3.5+ million unique sellers at any given time on eBay. In just 3 months, product was adopted by 12 million listings on eBay.
2) On a personal level, a few years back, I trained and completed full (26.2 miles) marathon in San Francisco. Becoming from not so much a runner to a marathon runner was humbling.
3) When at Stanford Business School, I started a voluntary organization, TechX and invited many CEOs and world renowned influencers to meet with my classmates. I am very proud that these meetings resulted in amazing career and entrepreneurial opportunities for many of my colleagues.
