My father teaching me how to surf in Hawaii

I was born and raised in Hawaii and spent much of my childhood surfing, hunting, and playing soccer. I also found myself playing video games all the time. Gaming as a youngster invoked many questions about how computers and networking worked. Years later I found myself studying computer science in college and started my career as a software engineer. Devops, automation, cloud, software engineering, and security are areas that I try to focus on.

Investing and personal finance are also interesting to me. In high school I dabbled in trading futures and learned some sophisticated ways of losing money. Crypto is gambling, but its fun nonetheless. My primary focus today is in Real Estate and how it builds long-term residual wealth.

This is most exciting period of time in human civilization. The advancement of tech we experience today is abnormal, the world looks vastly different today than it did 100 years ago. I am thrilled to watch how technology further changes the world.
