Technology creation is my favorite activity- some formative highlights:
• Built a Heathkit shortwave radio, as a kid
• Apple ][+ BASIC programming classes at the University of California in 6th grade
• Worked as assistant electromechanical prototype design engineer during high school
• Began using Internet and BSD 4.3 UNIX for programming and early social networking (messaging, forums, email, image sharing) at the University of California
• Startup IPO at Sonic Solutions in 1994 - I specialized in IP networks for music studios
The field of technology lends itself to working with great people all over the world- and that is the most important reward for me.
