I'm a 27 yr. old product owner in Austin, Texas, who started off as a economics/finance/stock guy and got pulled into this wild world of tech about 7 years ago. Ever since, I've run as a developer, then analyst, then PMP-certified project manager, and now product owner; and yet, even as my career grows, I am unable to force myself hard enough to stay away from the nuts and bolts of code and engineering innovation. Our society is only at the forefront of the knowledge explosion, and I know that I'd be missing out on so much potential if I didn't dive in head first and ride the current.
