Hey, I’m Nolan. My bio: formerly engineer on the autopilot team at Tesla 2020-‘22. Reported to Elon, the CEO, every few weeks for close to a year. Worked before that at Google 2019 doing “big data” stuff for a new ads team (Showcase Shopping ads, which you may have seen). And before that for US Navy SYSCOM 2017-‘18 with a secret security clearance, serving US Marine Corps units worldwide. Now: I recently quit my gig at Tesla to start a new company, q, which is the eventual successor of GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, and all old-school VCSs (and their hosts) as a whole. My cofounders and I think it’s gonna be great. The goal/prognosis of the company is to build the VCS of the next 30 years. Other interests: - Flying: I’m an FAA private-rated pilot (if you want to talk shop or fly sometime, let me know) - CNS regeneration: In 2019, I broke my neck and drowned during a trip in Madagascar. I was instantly paralysed from a cervical SCI. So, I’m very interested in solving this problem (CNS regeneration for SCI/TBI/etc), specifically for those who were—and will be—less fortunate than me. If you know anything please reach out. (Btw, I recovered, but it was not easy, or short.)
My resume is available for your viewing pleasure.
