I am an American computer programmer. Here is an awkward interview:
I am the Chief Product Officer at Kickstarter
Previously I was the co-founder and CEO of VHX, launched in 2010. In 2017 we were acquired by Vimeo.
Prior to that I helped create Know Your Meme, acquired by the Cheezburger Network in 2011. Some of the videos we made are embedded below.
In 2010 I won a Primetime Emmy for my work on Star Wars Uncut with Casey Pugh, my co-founder at VHX.
From 2007 to 2016 I was a member of the FAT Lab (Free Art & Technology), a group of artists, hackers, and activists "releasing early, often and w/ rap music."
I contributed to lots of small and large projects, all released as open-source, including Graffiti Markup Language, Google Alarm, Internet Famous Class, occupyinter.net, FuckFlickr, Kanye Rant Detector, and many more.
Here's the crew with the fake Google Street View car we built:
