Software Engineer
Elmer is formally trained as a Computer & Electrical Engineer with a B.S. in Computer Engineering and a Masters in Electrical Engineering (Focus was on Control Systems, specifically GPS navigation systems) at the University of California, Riverside. Afterwards, he added a few mentors, then some sales and marketing skills to his repertoire and co-founded several companies, including AboveTheLimit.com, ThemBid.com, ATL Innovations, IER Solutions and LogoBids.com. He then began at SendGrid as a Web Development Manager, then moved to a Product Development role. After spending 2 years traveling as a Developer Evangelist, Elmer is now serving as the Hacker in Residence. His passions include reading, writing, coding and creating, especially in the area of personal development and productivity through quantification. He is considered a social media influencer ( starting as a power Digg user, when that was a thing :) ), known as ThinkingSerious. More detail can be found at his blog, ThinkingSerious.com.
