My name is Ami Patel and I am currently a M.S. Project Management Candidate at the University of Southern California. My ambitions lie at the crossroads of technology and management as I aspire to become a leading Product Manager to drive new, innovative products that will continue transforming our society.
Outside of work, I enjoy watercolor and calligraphy to create small commemorative pieces for friends and family. Traveling to see new sights and try new foods is exciting because I never know what I might stumble upon. I also play volleyball to put my all on the court as well.
My passion to persevere and understand various perspectives strengthen my ability in building and driving cohesive teams to produce meaningful projects and connections in the community. I aim to serve as a bridge between various parties ranging from consumers to the developer and I am currently looking for opportunities to gain more experience via a career in product management.RESUME CONTACT ME

Serendipity - a fortunate happenstance.
Throughout life we experience a variety of emotions and events that range an immensely large spectrum. This platform is for me to share my perspective on daily experiences and feelings. By sharing my thoughts, I am slowly learning to be appreciative of both the good and bad, success and failure, and so on. I hope my thoughts help you and show you another side to a story you haven’t seen.
