What was your path to SeatGeek?
I’ve always loved the web, started learning to design/code in high school and freelanced all the way through college. I’ve worked with a lot of cool companies over the years and even started a few of my own. I studied economics at Vanderbilt and graduated in 2014, took a quick pit stop in Japan and headed right for SeatGeek.
What’s the most interesting project you’ve worked on since joining?
I’ve worked on a lot of cool things from the Living Social partnership to implementing SeatGeek checkout on mobile, but my favorite project so far was probably the redesign of our General Admission pages.
What do you want to work on next?
I would really love to work on the next release of Sixpack, our a/b testing framework. I think it could be made even more accessible, allowing anyone at the company to run a/b tests by clicking a few buttons and pasting in some custom code.
What’s your favorite SeatGeek experience?
Sylvan Esso at Bowery Ballroom. Hands down.
What’s your top NYC recommendation – food, fun, neighborhood, etc.?
Porto Rico is my favorite coffee shop in NYC. They have dozens of burlap sacks filled with beans from around the world – the smells are heavenly. There’s also a fantastic Filipino restaurant I love in the East Village called Jeepney. I know it sounds weird, but try the banana ketchup ribs.
