What are a few of your strengths and passions? How has working at Mediaocean enabled you to flex some of these muscles?

I love all things technology and like to keep up with the latest and greatest in software development. At Mediaocean, I have had opportunities to apply my learning and introduce technologies to make us better at building quality software.

In what ways has working at Mediaocean challenged you and enabled you to grow?

Being new to adtech, working with people who deeply understand the industry was a huge plus. I have learnt a lot about advertising over these past years. The environment here is very much like a startup in that I am an integral part of every phase of the product and I have had opportunities to wear many hats.

The people – smart, always helpful, and focused on doing the right thing.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years and what role does Mediaocean play in helping you get there?

Both the technology and the advertising landscape are constantly evolving – it's going to be an exciting challenge keeping up.  With Mediaocean's unique market position, I hope to not only be a part of this change but also help shape it.
