I've been in technology since 1992 and have worked with many different people over the years. I've found that a lot of those people didn't take the well-traveled path to get them where they were in their careers. Those are the stories I'm interested in exploring and sharing – what roads, paths, and alleys people have taken to get them to their best place so far.
The idea of following a specific path to reach a particular goal became more important to me as I helped my daughter plan for college, as it related to future employment. She's a student at the University of Washington, Seattle and decided that she wanted to focus on Product/Program management. Having worked in that role for many years, and hearing stories from others who have worked in the same field, I was able to share many different options on how to reach her goal. It also inspired me to start talking to others and share their stories.
My hope is that anyone with an interest in pursuing a destination can benefit from these stories, and see that although there may be a common path to travel, there are also many other roads that can lead to the same destination.
