Hi! I'm Christian Genco. I went to college for free at SMU to study computer science and started making cool stuff instead of getting a job after I graduated in 2013. My projects make more money than I spend, and I'm on track to financially retire before I'm 30, so I lived in an RV traveling with my wife for a year, and now live in Dallas TX.

I like spending my time solving problems that help people, and helping people solve problems. If you have a cool project, or if you just want to say hey, send me an email!
