What attracted you to the FinTech industry and Sound Payments Inc.?
I had several friends in the software side of payments, and I loved what they were doing at the time – mostly because no one else was doing it. Sound Payments was an interesting opportunity for me for that same reason. We’re doing new things that no one else is doing.
What is your focus at Sound Payments?
My biggest focus is on building teams and encouraging collaboration. We have some very talented people at Sound Payments who are driving automation, processes and creating a solid infrastructure to scale and deliver quickly.
How do you create value and what do you enjoy the most?
Supporting my people and helping them succeed. I enjoy seeing their efforts come to life and letting people have the spotlight for the contributions they make. That creates a better client experience.
What would be the top two most interesting places you visited and what was the most memorable moment?
Each place I have visited had something interesting about it. Also, I need to travel abroad more!
What are your top two favorite books?
History Begins at Sumer: Thirty-Nine Firsts in Recorded History by Samuel Noah Kramer. And Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari …Stuff that would probably put others to sleep.
