Candidate:

Mr. Government Entrepreneur

About Me:

After college, I took a gap year because of health issues and then proceeded on a non-traditional path as planned. My goal was to figure out what I wanted to do before committing to an industry. I ended up entering public policy and simultaneously founded a startup. Two years later I can safely say that I’d much rather work in the private sector.
