    At the rare intersection of engineering (technical, analytical world) and design (creative thinking world) is where true innovation happens. I try to leverage my strengths. I am a very fast learner allowing me to keep on the bleeding edge. I analyze, assimilate and abstract out-of-the-box being creative and using new methodologies. And given my peer-oriented character, I share and empower around me (I am definitely a giver, see Adam Grant’s TED talk).
