Me: "For Melissa's birthday, I sent her a Minted greeting card that said 'Happy birthday to the number-one most froggy friend'. On the inside, it said, 'I am so lucky to spend 5/7 of my days with you, sometimes 6/7.'"
Tom: "You both go into work on the weekends?"
Me: "No, I sometimes hang out with her socially."
Tom: "Oh I see."
Me: "So your natural conclusion is that I work on weekends, not that I might have a friend."
I live in San Francisco. I am CTO of Minted, a 100-person company in Financial District. We build a platform that crowdsources graphic designs and art from a global community. Previously I led engineering teams at Google and Microsoft for a combined 10 years. I have an awesome little brother. My name is pronounced like "Vivian" with N's.
