How do you think the local tech industry will evolve over the next five years? I think we’ve seen a very solid foundation built for Washington’s tech industry. With local startups becoming big, incubators and startup spaces like 1776, and tech companies all having a presence here, I think you’ll continue to see this area grow and prosper. Motto/quote you live by? “So keep fightin’ for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don’t you forget to have fun doin’ it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin’ ass and celebratin’ the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was.” (Molly Ivins) A natural talent you wish you had? I wish I had some, any, musical talent, particularly when it comes to karaoke. I make up for it with enthusiasm.
