1)Where are you located? San Francisco, CA 2) How old are you? 27 3) What is your job title?

1)Where are you located? San Francisco 2) How old are you? 29 3) What is your job title? I am a pricing manager at Splunk. 4) How has the transition been from backpack to briefcase (college to adulthood)? I would summarize the transition in one word – exhilarating.
