What’s the most exciting part of your job?
That moment when I realize that I understand a seemingly niche or convoluted business and how it fits into the broader economy. Every business can appear so specific / unique, but over time as you zoom out and put together all the puzzle pieces, you realize you've figured out a lot about how the world works!
If I weren't an analyst, I would be...
a high school Calculus teacher. Math is a joy if you learn from someone who loves it!
