LDC:What was it like attending Baruch College?
PM: The experience was enriching, challenging and mind opening. The student body at Baruch boasted up to 200 countries so I was constantly exposed to many different cultures and point of views which made my collegiate years very exciting. The diversity of the school helped me enhance my social skills and how to relate to different people which greatly helped me in dealing with people in business today.
LDC: What sparked your interest in computer science?
PM: I was always fascinated by innovation and building new things. The internet revolution was starting while I was in college, circa 1994/1995 and I was blown away by entrepreneurs entering the commercial web space and creating game changing companies like Netscape, AOL, etc. I wanted to embrace this new phenomenon as it was happening so I decided to add Computer Science as a minor but kept marketing as a major to ultimately learn the front end and back end of a tech business.
