Hi! I'm Christian Genco. I'm the founder of Fileinbox, author of the Microconf Recap, and creator of several smaller projects.

I'm into minimalism and keep a list of everything I own. I vlog and write and take book notes to work on being a better human.

What I'm excited about right now

Improving onboarding for Fileinbox, getting re-settled into productive routines after moving back to Dallas, doing lots of personal growth work to enable healthier relationships, and dreaming about what exciting adventures are up next (looking strongly at something like Remote Year).
