Jennifer Bonine: All right. We are back with another virtual interview. I am so excited. I am so excited here.
Tania Katan: Full disclosure, I'm excited, too. I am.
Jennifer Bonine: I'm here with Tania, and your background is a little bit different than everyone else we're interviewing here.
Tania Katan: True story. News at five.
Jennifer Bonine: Exactly. This is fun. You should tell them how you got here. Right? Your background. You're not going to say, "I've been a tester since I was two."
Tania Katan: No. No. No. No. No. The opposite of testing. Exploring. I've been an explorer. I come from theater, the performing arts, and also visual arts. Since I was little I wrote plays and operas, like not real operas, just fake ones about my family, and I'd have them perform it at Passover.
Jennifer Bonine: You'd have your family perform it?
Tania Katan: Yeah.
Jennifer Bonine: They would be the characters? That's so cool.
Tania Katan: Yeah. My grandma would be like, "Put on a coat," because that was important to her, so that was her line. Anyway, yeah. I come from writing, performing, and engaging live audiences as opposed to mediated audiences. It's a really cool transition into the tech space for me.
Jennifer Bonine: Yeah. You work for an organization called Axosoft. For those that don't know what Axosoft is, really neat story. A female CEO in technology.
Tania Katan: Yeah. True story.
