Member of the Month: Tim Wang

Member of the Month: Tim Wang Tell us about yourself! It can be about anything – where you grew up, your professional background, your hobbies, etc. Hello, everyone. My name is Tim Wang. I grew up in Belmont, MA (a suburb of Boston) and moved to NYC in 2008 to begin my professional career. I consult clients on how to best optimize their marketing dollars across their marketing channels. Even though I work (some of my friends find this hard to believe), I'd say I'm more of a "work to live" rather than "live to work" type of person. Right now my favorite hobby is spending time with my 2...

Member of the Month: Nicole Tai Tell us about yourself! It can be about anything – where you grew up, your professional background, your hobbies, etc. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and first moved to the East Coast for college.

In my free time, I read (everything from YA fiction to the New York Times), attempt to brush up on my languages (Mandarin and French so far—I hope to eventually pick up Taiwanese!), and collect...

Member of the Month: William Lin Tell us about yourself! It can be about anything – where you grew up, your professional background, your hobbies, etc. I was born in Saudi Arabia then lived in Taiwan before coming to the United States.

In other words, my career experience has ranged from checking under the skirts of companies to helping companies get married.
