Paul Rada

My name is Paul Rada.

To those that work with me, I'm often known as a maker, designer, programmer, but mostly as a product guy. I've studied and worked in entertainment business and product design. I'm also a self-taught programmer with production frontend and prototype backend experience.

"Our guiding principle was that design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life, necessary for everyone in a civilized society." - Walter Adolph Georg Gropius

I cut my teeth learning design at Art Center in Pasadena. I then transferred those skills into tech by auditing computer science classes in CalTech and working as both a designer and programmer in the startup world.

I'm endlessly grateful to have discovered a discipline that alters my everyday outlook for the better. To this day I credit design thinking for helping me make the best decisions of my life, in or out of the office.

It's cliche, he meant a computer, but it perfectly explains what programming has been to me. When I started I thought it would be just another craft, but then its theory superseded my thoughts. Now I can only see the world by its abstraction.

It's also one of my favorite mediums to experiment with.
