What attracted you to Better Therapeutics?
I was drawn to Better because it has a vision to help people. I am also a firm believer in improving health through lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise.
What do you find most exciting about the type of work you do?
I am excited by the challenge. It started with getting Better through its first audit. Now I am building a new team and am excited to teach and mentor them.
What are you most looking forward to in your new role at Better Therapeutics?
I look forward to being part of building a great company. There are so many things to do as Better enters this period of rapid growth, and I am excited to be part of it.
Where do you find inspiration and purpose?
My wife and children. My wife was in finance prior to staying home to raise and educate our children (which frankly is a much harder job than finance). She also is my ‘executive coach’ helping me grow personally and professionally.
Tell us one fun fact about yourself.
Last summer during the pandemic, my sons and I rebuilt an ’89 Jeep Wrangler including replacing the engine and transmission and repainting it. It was fun to get my hands dirty and build something.
