I was very academically oriented [growing up]. I’m proud to call myself a nerd. In fact when I was in high school I was able to take both high school and college classes. So while I was there I took as many college classes as I could. I was taking classes after school hours. I was taking classes before school hours, early in the morning, 6AM. And I was even taking classes online—I remember I took AP Computer Science online. And when I could I took classes on the weekends. I remember I took Chemistry classes on the weekends.
Things are changing so fast. VR. AR. Home automation. [Amazon’s] Alexa. There are so many things I could not have predicted or thought of existing a few years ago. In the future I want to be working on a product like that, at the brink of technology. I want to bring a new experience to people. Something they could not imagine before.
I know for a fact that these types of things happen only here in the U.S. This is a center for technology, full of the top minds. There is nowhere else I can do something like this.
