I have a bachelor's degree from UMASS Boston. Prior to MojoTech, I worked for a company that specialized in building software for healthcare organizations.
I once spent a summer designing and building roller coasters. Some might take pride in how exciting their coasters were, how many inversions and how fast they went. Me? I liked to see them crash. I should maybe mention these were K’nex roller coasters I built in my bedroom when I was 10.
On the serious side, one of the most interesting professional projects I worked on was creating a mobile application that allowed people to navigate building interiors. Like Google maps but for the insides of multi-story buildings.
Seeing how things break. Putting things together and building them up is fun, but there is nothing like that one moment when you see how much something can take before it all comes crashing down into a pile of rubble.
Persistence. You can only fail if you give up.
Rapid unscheduled disassembly.
I once had to determine how many jelly beans were in a giant jar filled with jelly beans.
Taking over the world. And teaming up with some really talented colleagues in order to do so.
Recently, James S.A. Corey has been pretty big with me. Inspires me to dream big, and reach for the stars.
I’ve dreamed of being banished to a dessert island. I hope there is pie, that would be the best. Cookies would also be good.
A warm fruit pie, strawberry probably. With a scoop of ice cream on top.
