The Lendtable TeamOctober 03, 2022

Hi Shug, we're so excited to have you here! Why don't you introduce yourself a little?

Hi! I have been an engineer in Silicon Valley for over 10 years now. I have worked at and advised companies of various sizes, from pre-seed to Facebook. I am also passionate about trust and safety work, and I moonlight as a Fellow at the Integrity Institute.

Where are you from?

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, but I have lived in the Bay Area for a long time now!

Before coming to Lendtable, what were you doing?

Most recently, I was working as a Staff Software Engineer at Clubhouse.

What made you choose to come to Lendtable?

The company's stage is really exciting, and I was very excited about the position! Mitch also really impressed me, and I feel like we clicked really well. I am excited to work for him.

Why is Lendtable's mission important to you?

Lendtable's mission really resonated with me. Fintech companies that give access to financial tools that have skewed towards the rich are fulfilling the promise of technology in finance - to make great financial products accessible to everyone. Lendtable's mission is right in the middle of that vision, and I am excited to be part of making that vision a reality.

What are you passionate about outside of work?

My family! I have a wife and two kids.

Where do you look for financial tips and advice?

My finances are typically pretty boring, but I recently invested in crypto after discussions with my best buddy. Right before the crash!

What do you consider your greatest financial accomplishment?

Paying off our student loans! They were pretty massive, and it was a great feeling to pay them off.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give your younger self?

Work on and invest in things bigger than yourself - things that improve the world. Working on something meaningful is more important than what you do day to day.

Rapid fire time!

Favorite season?

Fall!

Pet peeve?

The GPS voice.

Favorite cuisine?

Korean!

Favorite city?

Barcelona.

Favorite drink?

Red wine (I'm a Cab guy)

Nickname?

Any last remarks?

Really excited to be here, and the Lendtable team is pretty special. Really looking forward to seeing what we can do!
