Weirdo, computer nerd, aspiring ecosystem co-creator, I've lead a strange and unlikely life. I dropped out of high school and was homeless for several years. During that time I learned Reiki, and how to operate and program Linux computers. I decided to get a job as a programmer, so I created a project and presented it at CodeCon 2004. That led to a career as a computer programmer. I worked at several startups (including Etsy) and eventually as a TVC at the Google campus in Mountain View. Since then I have been semi-retired, and I've turned my attention to my other passion: gardening and ecology.
