I was born and raised in Zambia and came to the United States for university. Even though growing up I had almost no exposure to computers I chose to study computer engineering. Fortunately for me this leap of faith proved to be a great decision as Ive been very blessed with the career that came after.
When I started my tenure at Intuit my first job was working as a developer on QuickBooks for DOS. In what would turn out to be a 22-year run I got a front row seat in watching technology evolve by working on Windows Mac and eventually online and mobile offerings. I was fortunate to play a leading role in the development of new Intuit products which further fueled my passion for innovation.
From this vantage point there is no doubt that the internet has been the most transformational technology in my years working in the industry. The internet has not only expanded the possibilities of problems to solve and how to solve them but it has also expanded the reach of who can benefit from the solutions.
