I’ve been extremely fortunate over the last few years to meet many amazing people, and go through some incredible experiences. From a very early age, I knew I wanted to be involved with technology in some way or another. As a hobby, my dad and I would take apart computers on the weekends, and put- Read More -
There are certain experiences that you go through in life which make you pause and reflect on the bigger picture. A few days ago, I had the unique experience to go to one of the most notable and oldest state prisons in California, San Quentin State Prison, and speak to a group of inmates as- Read More -
Earlier today news broke that Heather Harde, CEO of TechCrunch, was leaving Aol at the end of the year. During my nine months at TechCrunch, I worked closley with Heather (she was my boss) and had a few thoughts that I wanted to share regarding this announcement and my experience working with her. Heather is- Read More -
Over the last few hours, I’ve spent some time reflecting on the news that really shocked the world — Steve Jobs had passed away. Just six weeks before he passed, he officially resigned from Apple, the company he helped start and led for so many years. He really gave it his all, up until the- Read More -
With yesterday being my 18th birthday, a lot has changed in the last year. I’ve had a lot of time now to reflect on the actions that took place earlier this year, and I’d like to share my experiences with you all today.
I’ll be the first to admit that I made a mistake. Not just any mistake, but a big mistake that is going to follow me for a long time, and at this point, there is nothing that I can do about that, but take 100% responsibility for my actions.
I made a critical error in my judgement that could have been easily avoided, and I take full responsibility for my actions that put myself, and others in harms way. I’ve learned a valuable lesson from this entire experience, and hope that not only can I grow from this, but others will be able to learn from my mistake, and hope that they don’t have to go through something like this.
After taking a few months off since February, I’ve had a lot of time to think and reflect on these last few months, and choose my next steps going forward. I’ve tried to stay off the grid as much as possible in terms of public events and such, but I’m excited that I’m starting to- Read More -
Well, that didn’t take long! A few days ago, I got an IM from Lachy Groom, a friend of mine. Lachy and I had a chance to work together when he was the Director of Product Management at Teens in Tech Networks for a little bit. If you don’t know Lachy, then you probably should.- Read More -
Before I start of, I wanted to let everyone know that this has probably been one of the hardest posts I’ve written on my blog. Over the last two years, I’ve done a lot in technology — I joined Qik in January 2008, started Teens in Tech Networks in February 2008, worked with some amazing- Read More -
If anyone knows me, they know that I do not like school. It’s not something that I enjoy, or at least have not enjoyed in high school. Being a senior in high school, these last few weeks have been filled with senior news and updates — most having to do with college. About two years- Read More -
I typically don’t write about specific personal events in my life, but I feel like this one is something that I want to share with everyone. Many people don’t know, but my mom is actually a marathon runner. And of course, I’ve been inspired by her, to train for my first official running competition —- Read More -
