Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
As a kid, had a strong curiosity for math, science technology.
Was obsessed with Star Wars, bought a telescope, got interested in space, space travel.
Went to MIT undergrad; "it was a challenge, to say the least," and he doubted he was good enough.
Says, "get people around you that are going to help you be successful; make sure you have a support system so you can fall back on them."
Encourages students to "take what the professor gives you and distill it into something you understand," rewrite your notes in a language you understand.
When confronted with distractions living in the Bay Area ("a happenin' place"), just kept his focus on getting his Stanford degree.
Now works at Texas Instruments developing semiconductor materials that enable touchscreen capabilities in computers and phones.
