Contacting Me
or how to cold message me.
I write this for people who:
  • Want to reach out to me
  • Send me a LinkedIn request without a note
I don't mind connecting, but I'd like to know:
  • who I'm connecting with
  • that my connections are of a higher quality
My recommendations for reaching out to me:
  • Please be kind, courteous.
  • Introduce yourself. Tell me who you are and a bit of background about you.
  • Tell me how you found me.
  • Tell me directly what you want. Be it help, advice, internship, etc. Please do not beat around the bush.
  • You don't need to be formal.
  • If you email me, do share your phone number, or preferred way of texting you so that we can keep conversations casual. (WhatsApp, Messenger, Telegram)
I apologize if this appears curt, or intimidating but it helps both of us.
