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.
Good health is the most important life and work goal. Everything else depends on it. (h/t Leila Janah)
Minimalist: I feel more free when I own fewer things.
Love: Books, standup comedy, and ocean paddleboarding.
Travel: Trips to China, Japan, Spain, Finland, France (2019); Greece (2018), Peru (2017), Iceland (2016), and Tanzania (2015).
I'm impatiently optimistic about the intersection of tech, science, and healthcare, specifically the continued progress of mental health, global gender equality, vaccine programs, disease screening paradigms, and reducing maternal mortality.
Cool gigs in life:
Supporter of public radio, Committee to Protect Journalists, Doctors Without Borders, and Planned Parenthood.
From those to whom much is given, much is expected.
