I'm a California retransplant from Florida. Raised in god's waiting room of Boca Raton, FL and edumacated in good 'ole Gainesville, FL; you can imagine I'm very happy to be here.
I attended the University of Florida in Gainesville for two years towards a Mechanical Engineering degree and a semester for Computer Science. My grades were shit near the end of my M.E. pursuit so by the time I switched paths I'd lost my scholarships. Paying out of pocket I wasn't digging it; thankfully I'd gotten a job with Grooveshark by then and was able to switch to full time as a QA Developer. I worked there for two years before deciding that the time was right to head to San Francisco.
