I grew up in Virginia, and moved to California during high school. After high school, I attended UC Berkeley, double majoring in Computer Science and Business Administration.Once graduated, I worked on a b2b SaaS startup for about 8 months, before deciding to shut it down. I went into product management at Workday for about a year and a half afterwards.Startups were always the most exciting and rewarding for me, so in January 2021, I left my product management role and started working on Joon full-time alongside 2 friends from college. We launched a beta for Joon in 2021, raised pre-seed funding, and then did Y Combinator for their W22 batch. Since then we've been focusing on growing Joon, while creating the best user experience for families that we can.
