The belief in oneself to accomplish a specific task is a strong predictor of success.
Paul’s educational roots are in engineering and IT management. He picked up programming and scripting skills while working in industry before finding himself at UW. He divides his spare time between ham radios, cycling, and endless internet tech and other how-to education. Paul’s strategy is to hire awesome staff and let them follow their interests. It’s working okay so far.
