Humans of Expensify: People that don’t suck!

Once a month, Humans of Expensify will profile one of our team members, because behind every great expense report, there is an even greater human.

“It’s a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run.

I did the Ironman three years ago, and last year my wife and I went to Spain for one of her Ironman races. We actually met doing a triathlon and we take turns training for races.

It’s important to have a counterbalance to work. At Expensify, we all live and breathe Expensify, and I think that’s awesome, but at the same time it’s important to have other things too. For me, this is that other thing.

I’m always that person who needs a hobby. I like competing with myself — you can’t lie to yourself and towards the end you have to find the endurance and motivation out of nowhere.

I think the human body is amazing and can do crazy things and yes, there’s a physical barrier and training is necessary, but my big belief is that the mental stuff is the only thing that can hold you back.

For me, running is a form of meditation, I don’t really listen to music, I just get lost in my thoughts.  Anytime I’m working on a hard problem, I’ll think of the solution while I’m running. The running part becomes automatic and then you just have your thoughts left.

I would say, next on the bucket list is probably a 100 mile race, and for that you have to run through the night and basically just not eat. I mean you can only eat so much of that goo…”

Expensify is more than a company, we are family. We come from 5 different countries and 6 different time zones, and we all connect for one reason — to get shit done, together.
