Hi! I’m Issac. I try hard to learn new things but I’ve always been kind of a non-traditional student. I dropped out of high school and then dropped out of college.
Getting kicked out of school for two months and being told to learn by myself on the internet would have been a dream for me.
I know that schools are closing and that other in-person events like Black Girls Code are being canceled and delayed and I want to help out.
I also am dealing with my own cabin fever from a surprise work-from-home situation and my whole family being slightly under the weather.
If you’re a kid or a parent (middle school to undergrad) and you fall in this category but don’t really know where to start I have an idea…
firstname.lastname@example.org – I’ll publish a few letters and my responses.
I can also probably open up a few short video chats next week, but start by writing me a letter and telling me what you’re interested in learning.

I won't ever give out your email address. I don't publish comments but if you'd like to write to me then you could use this form.
I'm Issac. I live in Oakland. I make things for fun and money. I use electronics and computers and software. I manage teams and projects top to bottom. I've worked as a consultant, software engineer, hardware designer, artist, technology director and team lead. I do occasional fabrication in wood and plastic and metal. I run a boutique interactive agency with my brother Kasey and a roving cast of experts at Kelly Creative Tech. I was the Director of Technology for Nonchalance during the The Latitude Society project. I was the Lead Web Developer and then Technical Marketing Engineer at Nebula, which made an OpenStack Appliance. I've been building things on the web and in person since leaving Ohio State University's Electrical and Computer engineering program in 2007. Lots of other really dorky things happened to me before that, like dropping out of high school to go to university, getting an Eagle Scout award, and getting 6th in a state-wide algebra competition. I have an affinity for hopscotch.
