About Paige Zeigler
Obsessed with tech since 1990. Part of what WIRED dubbed as AOL's "youth corps" from May '96-July '99. Taught myself to play piano on Nintendo, type using an electronic typewriter, e-mail on eWorld, and program in RAINMAN. High-school dropout who later joined Google at age 20 as the youngest member of the sales organization. Between 2009-2015, was also known to occasionally moonlight as a neuroscience nurse.
- Now: San Francisco living. Work in venture capital.
- Minimalist: I feel more free when I own fewer things.
- Aiming to finish 50 books this year.
I'm impatiently optimistic about the intersection of tech, science, and healthcare, specifically the continued progress of global gender equality, vaccine programs, disease screening paradigms, and reducing maternal mortality.
