Thank You:
  • I want to extend my gratitude to Christopher Kusek for inviting me to collaborate on this video, which we are excited to share on his YouTube channel.
  • Christopher has been a mentor to me from the moment I stepped into VMware. In my very first week at the company, even before we became colleagues on the same team, Christopher reached out to me and initiated a Zoom session. He expressed his genuine commitment to ensuring my success at VMware and offered valuable insights and guidance. Now that we’re both part of the same team, Christopher’s support continues to be an asset in my daily journey. Throughout one’s career, there are individuals who leave a lasting impact, and Christopher Kusek has played that role in mine. I will forever appreciate his guidance and cherish the friendship we’ve built.

The culture within my team is nothing short of remarkable; it’s the most collaborative environment I’ve ever been a part of. Here, everyone is genuinely invested in each other’s success, always ready to extend a helping hand.
