I’ve worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for years, which is practically synonymous with working in the technology industry. Most notably (and recently), I was working for Google helping architect YouTube Certified online. Before that was StrongLoop, Silicon Valley Bank, etc.
But I’ve been a bit of a mad scientist since I was a kid, really. I believe that technology can solve many of the simple and the complex problems we encounter, though it is ultimately a distraction from the most important issues humanity faces. Tech (or more specifically, the internet) has made the very lifestyle I lead possible. I’m always working on something better for the same reason that I’m always improving myself. I want to be more than I am. Don’t you?
