You've been know to dream in SQL, while in your waking hours you enjoy meeting new people and picking their brains. You periodically open comScore and then realize you haven't eaten or slept in days.
You're unfalteringly curious, yet have an exceptional ability to synthesize and communicate complex and nuanced information in boiled-down form. Your friends come to you for help developing their elevator pitches.
You have a genuine interest in online communities and marketplaces, and love all things international. You feel empowered by self-directed work.
