About Me
I work in Redmond, WA, right outside of Seattle. Redmond is the home of Microsoft and is just a couple miles from Kirkland, where Google is.

I work at a new startup called Empower.me. We focus on keeping kids in school, doing really well in school, and preparing them for their lives.

We accomplish this by finding what they love to do and allowing them to learn through what they love. Everyone loves different things and is talented in unique ways. Why make everyone learn the same way?

We change that! We empower teenagers through their passions.

As Steve Jobs said, "The only way to do good work is to love the thing you do."

My friends used to network computers on a "hub" (long before they were called a switch) because our dial-up internet was too slow. Now, I'm older and slower, and so is my gaming.
