The one thing I enjoy most about my work is: using code to solve problems. It’s like a continual puzzle that you always have tools for — it’s just figuring out how to use them.

My business philosophy is: Make something people want.

If I could, I’d be a: professional break-dancer.

I’m so sick of: hearing about new social media mashups.

The four guests at my fantasy dinner party would be: Nikola Tesla, Matt Inman, Paul Irish and George Lucas.

My hobbies are: surprisingly, the same things I do daily — coding, startups and research.

The last book I read was: Startup Communities by Brad Feld.

I wish I knew how to: play the drums.

My worst habit is: being picky about designs.

Nobody knows I: am (kind of) red-green color-blind.

The person I most admire is: my mother, Gina.

My guilty pleasure is: fruity, tropical drinks. I’ll drink anything with an umbrella.

I drive a: 2014 Toyota Camry.

I’d like to be driving a: 2014 Chevy Silverado.

My favorite restaurant is: pretty much anything Asian.

I’m happiest when: I’m helping others fulfill their dreams.

I regret: not getting the most out of my student experience.

If I won the lottery, here’s what I’d do just for me: pay off my student debt, to begin with.

If I could change one thing about Denton, it would be: to increase the tech presence in the community, and really make Denton a technical hub in North Texas.

When I retire, I plan to: continue what I’m already doing, building relationships and helping others.
