As with any startup, you never get the time to do the little things. I’ve been with Abaca Technology as their Director of Engineering for more than six months already and I just got a chance to write my bio for the leadership page. I think my focus has been in the right area because we’re making some serious progress. These are exciting times. If only I could talk about it more openly.
