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

My podcasting experiment Your Thoughts, going through 30x500 again for "sign printers" as an audience, being a person that works out (alternating between 5x5 and climbing) every day, going to Founder Summit and staying in a fancy AirBnB in March, and going to Microconf not in Las Vegas in April.
