Hello 👋

Unfortunately, I don't have any available slot for the next 4 weeks

    Just because something has “always been that way” doesn’t mean we can’t improve it. Yet, one of the fascinating ironies of content security is that, as fast as technology evolves, the industry is still trying to solve modern challenges with a mindset that’s 10+ years old. My goal is to change that. Throughout my career, which has touched everything from identity management to threat protection, the same theme has played out: keeping bad actors out, without worrying about the friction it creates for end users. In some ways, I helped to create these problems myself, but I believe we can do better. As Albert Einstein said, “We can’t solve problems using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” We need to be more strategic with solutions that empower people without getting in their way. That’s what I do at Box, and that’s what I encourage my team to do—to deeply understand the basic “why” behind the problems we’re trying to solve and to seek solutions that prepare our customers for the future without being stuck in the past. If we always build for the “now,” we will always be behind, and our solutions won’t get any better.
