I focus on learning skills rather than gaining pedigree, especially because pedigree isn't typically an accommodating process. This means I've done bootcamps, certifications (App Academy, Outco, Triplebyte), apprenticeships (LinkedIn), and so many hackathons (neuroscience, cyptocurrency, angelhack, Noisebridge's Stupid Stuff No One Needs And Terrible Ideas Hackathon)
Ideal Workplace Values
Long-term vision without sacrificing short term needs. Understands that systemic problems require systemic solutions. Understands that change can happen over any time-scale. Values a resilient economy over a hypergrowth economy.

💪Skills & Strengths
I'm good at recognizing patterns. I can work for long periods with no breaks to meet deadlines (like at hackathons), provided I have necessary accommodations and compensation. I often come up with novel ideas that others don't think of. I pick up technical skills much faster than others. I remember details others seem to forget.
