My father introduced me to computers when they consisted of a black screen with green writing and you literally had to tell the computer to run the operating system.
I’ve been an early adopter of all tech from that moment on.
In the late ’90s, I was downloading mp3’s from AOL chat rooms (the original file-sharing platform, no BS!).
I am always first in line for things like the first portable mp3 player, called the PJBox-100, released in 1999 (2 years before the iPod!), and the first generation Jawbone Jambox Bluetooth speaker back in 2011. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art, RISD's lesser-known but equally impressive rival art school.
I learned a huge variety of skills there, from welding to weaving, as well as basic HTML(computer language).
The most important thing I walked away with though? Honing my innate ability to figure out how things work and make that work to my advantage.
Pair my penchant for tech with my background in art and eye for aesthetics and you get techAlkymi.
