I entered the world in Slough, a town so beautiful they wrote a poem about it. After competently jumping through hoops for eighteen years I studied Jurisprudence (a pretentious way of saying Law) at Oxford. 'Twasn't for me, after graduation I left for Silicon Valley to start a company. Sold that and moved to Vancouver. Returned to Silicon Valley and became a partner at Y Combinator, which had a whole book written about it. Current status: Vagabond.
