In the SKOUTlight: Tuan Nguyen

Every week, we feature one of the smiling faces behind the Skout team. This week, we bring you Tuan. Tuan serves as our in-house data and analytics guru as our marketing analyst. He’s one-part banana (what?) and one-part danger. Screen Shot 2013-10-25 at 4.43.07 PM How long have you been a Skout-er? Skout and I are high school sweethearts. We just celebrated our 1st monthaversary.

Describe a day in the life for you at Skout: I like to start my day off by reading romantic novels at 6:30 in the morning on my Caltrain commute from San Jose to San Francisco. During the day, if I'm not in meetings discussing revenue and user metrics, I'm pulling data so that I can discuss revenue and user metrics. During my breaks, I like to keep up with tech news...so that I can better discuss..revenue...and user metrics...

If you were competing for America's Got Talent, what would your talent be? Sing country music of course!

What is one modern convenience you absolutely cannot live without? Clorox wipes.
