How long have you been working in technology for and what is your technical background?

My first professional job out of college was at a ringtone startup in 2004 called MIDIRingtones. We produced ringtones and developed apps for flip phones, back in the RAZR and Sidekick days of mobile phones.

Before that, I studied Computer Engineering with a focus on Embedded Systems at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. I have always had a love of technology, from Number Munchers to programming in BASIC, so software engineering was a natural path.
