What sports did you play growing up?

What attracted you to working at PlaySight?

We started to talk about the technology and tennis and I told him that I was about to start computer science studies. I guess I said the right things because a few weeks later he suggested I apply for a job at PlaySight. Sports have always been a big part of my life, especially tennis. Being able to combine that with my interest in computers and technology made PlaySight a perfect fit for me.
