  • Blog Post: What I Wish My Younger Self Could See

    I can’t say there is one moment when I decided that I would go into technology. Growing up, I was one of the geekiest kids that I knew. When other girls were talking about popular bands in high school, I was listening to ripped tapes of video game music. When other girls were going on dates, I...
