    I've been lucky to work on things I've been passionate about over the years, namely sports and technology, and am driven to keep that ideal alive.

    Prior to making the jump to starting Please Bench Me, I was a Functional Architect and Team Lead at Accenture, experienced in a broad range of industries with a focus on Training and Development technology solutions.
