Personality

First, I consider myself a life hacker. I enjoy building modifications around the house, and using tools to build things that make my world more enjoyable. More often than not they are just simple combinations of products and ways of doing things that are different than what most people do, to make life more enjoyable. You know, like turning a dresser drawer into a sink, velcro’ing all your remotes on a stick, or making a bedside hydration system.

I probably get a lot of this from my Dad. My dad is a pilot, an engineer, an architect, a carpenter, an electrician, a mechanic, a builder. He can and does build anything and everything.

More than anything else, I’m interested in putting my work towards efforts that can make a positive impact on the world. There are clearly many problems we can solve in society, and I think a life worth living is one spent on working on those.
