What you’d be doing if you weren’t in tech: I would be working in the video game industry, either in game design or game development.
What’s the biggest problem the industry faces today, and how would you fix it?: I do believe more fresh perspectives for a new generation of ideas would benefit the industry, whether it is from people within the industry, new to the industry, or even from a different industry—no matter what experience level you have.
What’s your outlook for the CE industry for the next five years?: I do believe the CE industry will thrive in the next five years. There are many new technologies, new workforce, new ideas. People want smart homes. People want instant information. People want automation. There are still so many possibilities and I believe we have only seen the beginning.
