About me


While working at my dream job at Google, I hit burnout. I felt like I was just going through the motions, not really getting anywhere or learning enough.

That's when I turned to running. At first, running a single block felt impossible, but I stuck with it, mile after mile. It became more than just exercise; it was  my way of coping with stress, growing personally, and dealing with life's tougher moments, like grief and self-doubt.
