When considering my professional life, I think it boils down to three passions of mine:
Software Engineering - Software engineering is quickly reshaping the world around us in some amazing ways. It has also created new problems that we have to navigate. I love being able to use my knowledge to build things that improve lives and having conversations about the implications of technology.
Effective Altruism - I have always been passionate about charity, but recent conversations in my religious and secular circles have brought light to how well-intentioned charities can be inefficient or even harmful. I think there's still a lot of potential for technology companies to aid this work.
Security - Security is such a fascinating field to be in and it has a huge impact. When building security products, you're engaging in a cat and mouse style game to keep ahead of malicious parties. This brings about some exciting challenges and considerations.
