Tinkering, playing, and creating are in our DNA. We came up as a company of experimenters and that consistent thread will never go awayLearn More
We love the art of building something. Whether it's a bot or a continent wide data platform, the journey is as rewarding as the result to us.Learn More
We work with people we like. That's it. That's the core value.
The retaining wall in my backyard. Those bricks were no joke. I also built this (the only digital thing I've ever built that my mom truly gets)
Kula Project for 2 reasons. 1) They work in one of my favorite places (Rwanda) and 2) they teach economic empowerment through entrepreneurship which I think is a really novel and sustainable approach to eradicating poverty
Amigos for Christ, literally on the ground in Nicaragua, partnering with locals, to built up the economy and quality of life. I love the bottom up, on-the-ground strategy for improving the quality of life in Nicaragua. I’ve visited them before at their home base in Chinandega, and the folks I met were down to earth, positive, and genuinely good people. "We work shoulder-to-shoulder with Nicaraguan neighbors to bring clean water, healthcare, education, and economic opportunity to rural communities in need”
My woodworking projects: free standing bar, fish tank stand and floating bed w/ headboard attached nightstands
Project Healing Waters - This is a fly fishing charity that helps wounded veterans rehabilitate. My father helped run the Atlanta chapter and fly fishing has always been a part of my life, but also military service has always been something I admire and respect.
A rock climbing wall in my garage for my kids. They never use it, and still prefer to just climb all over the furniture in the house.
Habitat for Humanity. I think it's a brilliant way to allow people in need to buy their own home. Not only do the families get a stable environment to live and grow in, the home buyers also receive valuable financial education. Also, volunteering to be a builder can teach you valuable skills about construction and home improvement. I think that it is an organization that has huge positive impacts on communities around the globe, and those impacts are felt for generations.
A new AI virtual breedable pet on the Second Life platform
Wounded Warrior Project - I think I may have been a soldier in my past life. Ever since I was a child I've always connected with anything and everything involving the military. If I see a veteran in public, I always go out of my way to shake their hand and thank them for their service. Past or present, the men and women of the armed forces will always hold a special place in my heart.
I bought a new PC where I hand picked the parts. I also installed the OS and the software by myself
A charity that involves agriculture and local farmers is close to my heart since my father is farmer. I read about a charity that helped
poor farmers with their problem with water. They were taught permaculture. This provided them with a steady water supply for their crops
and drinking water. With the improved water supply they were able to have more options on what crops they can plant and also they now have a longer
Gerald isn't a real person. Back in 2017, we created a bot to track our weekly company stand-ups. Lacking a good name for this crucial fortune teller of who is doing what, we landed on 'Gerald'. Since then, he's taken on a life of his own in the bowels of Standard Co's technical library. So much that we decided to include him on our team page. Welcome aboard Gerald!
