My road in life took a while to figure out.
Had an interest in the universe so I took a physics class in high school.
At the same time I took a computer science class and was quite good at it.
Then I decided I wanted to make planes so I majored in Aeronautical / Aerospace Engineering.
But I had to keep taking physics and decided my major was too specific, so I switched to Physics.
I graduated with a degree in physics but didn't want to pursue it further.
Then I remembered I liked programming so I started looking for intro-level work in the field.
6 years later I moved to China to work remotely for a company still in San Francisco.
Now I work for startups wherever I want.
Keep following my journey

Problem Solving

Day to Day

I get up in whatever city I'm in, find an internet connection, and continue playing with my software LEGOs. Sometimes I'm working with some people and I head into their office. Sometimes I stay at home. I've done work on the beach in the Philippines, a hostel in Thailand, a sofa cafe in Shanghai, and a startup accelerator in Helsinki.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for middle school students

Start early. Start now. Don't wait for school to teach you. There are full tutorials online and when you've passed them, Google can literally answer 99.9% of issues that you come across. If Google can't answer your question, then you are probably getting paid a lot of money to figure out how.

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"Personally, I didn't hear much noise. My parents were very supportive of letting my brother and I do whatever we wanted. I suppose I was always into engineering / smart-people stuff so it was easier. For me, noise comes from society telling you that you're entitled to all this stuff; you're not. Yes, you can do ANYTHING! However, it's not going to be easy. Period. I guess my noise was people telling me that I was smart and making me think it was going to be easy."
