Q: Tell us about your background.
A: I’ve worked in the travel space for about 12 years, and I have a background in technology. I have a double masters and bachelor’s degree in computer science. After finishing my studies, I was working with partners already in travel, and was working on the technology of travel. Around that time in the year 2000, online travel reservations started getting much bigger and through already working in travel, it’s something I naturally fell into.
