Describe your position as an analyst on Google Cloud Team.
On the Google Cloud Team, I’m training and immersing myself in the different cloud products and learning how they can be applied to solutions. I also work on the Reveal team, which is an enterprise video solution.
Can you explain what your typical day entails.
One of the most exciting parts of my job is that each day is completely different. In this fast paced environment, each day brings new challenges. I spend a handful of my time monitoring and testing the development of the Reveal application and analyzing how we can implement more efficient solutions.

Where do you see the future of the Google Cloud Platform going?
Google Cloud Platform will continue to disrupt the market and compete with Microsoft and AWS. As they add more products and power to their platform more companies, like Snapchat and Spotify, will prove they can run large scale operations at a low cost and consumers will become more familiar with these new technologies. I’m excited to continue to learn and work keep up with the industry growth!
