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.
Now: San Francisco living.
Minimalist: I feel more free when I own fewer things.
Love: Books, standup comedy, and ocean paddleboarding.
Travel: Recent trips to Greece, Peru, Iceland, and Tanzania.
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.
Cool gigs in life:
Shattering my wrist at age 31 was not a cool gig but relearning how to use my left hand inspired a lot of tears, snot, and hard work. 💪
